    lol I like how these records are pretty much impossible to get outside of LBP, apart from the platformer one. That aside, I think this is super cool.

    Those are some completely made up and stupid (bordering on bull*hit) records manufactured just to promote the game. So now I can submit a record for “Longest time playing Super Mario Bros on a NES while balancing on one leg and eating a drinking a slurpee”?
