Jimmy Fallon sets Gaming Record


So as I always do when I am up late, I usu­al­ly leave the late night talk shows on TV while I am play­ing Eve Online, World of War­craft, or recent­ly Star­craft 2. How­ev­er on this evening Late Night with Jim­my Fal­lon caught my eye. Every so often Fal­lon does a bit on his show where he attempts to break or cre­ate world records. Usu­al­ly they are sil­ly and are ideas no one has thought of or attempt­ed before. Well as an offi­cial record, Jim­my Fal­lon has played the most dif­fer­ent gam­ing con­soles in 60 sec­onds. They rolled out a long table with 10 con­soles on them. They con­sist­ed of Nin­ten­do Enter­tain­ment Sys­tem (NES), Super Nin­teno, Sega Gen­e­sis, Nin­ten­do 64, Dream­cast, Playsta­tion, Playsta­tion 2,  Xbox, Playsta­tion 3, Wii, and Xbox 360. All con­soles were on and loaded with game clas­sics rang­ing from Leg­end of Zel­da to Crazy Taxi to Tomb Raider to Halo. All Jim­my had to do was basi­cal­ly move a lit­tle in each game for the record to count. He was doing great up until the Wii. Appar­ent­ly he could­n’t get the sen­sor to pick up the Wii-mote quick enough caus­ing him to spend pre­cious sec­onds try­ing to get it to work. He even­tu­al­ly gave up on the Wii and moved to the 360, which was the last con­sole, but the time wast­ed on the Wii made him run out of time before any­thing could be done on the 360. So as the record stands Jim­my Fal­lon has played 9 dif­fer­ent con­soles in 60 sec­onds. Gratz to Jim­my, but I am sure in the next few days some­one will have a video on youtube beat­ing the record.
