Snapdragon Pre-Qualifies Gamers To Break World Record

Gamers of all skill levels descended on Lexington Social House, a swank music lounge located smack in the middle of Hollywood and Vine, to partake in a pre-qualifier that would land them the opportunity to break a Guiness Book of World record. The event was hosted by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon™ Processors, and over 65 players gamed valiantly to earn a spot on the Snapdragon World Record Challenge roster, which will consist of 50 players that will game for 26 hours straight during the E3 Game Conference in Los Angeles.

Groups of ten gamers were ushered into a gaming lounge, where they battled to post the fastest finish time while playing Gameloft’s GT Racing: Motor Academy. The game is part of the Snapdragon GamePack and was loaded on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 provided by AT&T, featuring a Snapdragon S3 processor. Meanwhile, the awaiting challengers were treated to hors d’oevres and drinks while trying out the latest Android games on commercial Snapdragon-based smartphones, such as the HTC One X (AT&T) and Samsung Galaxy Note (LTE).

At the end of the night, we gave the top ten finishers their due props , not to mention a few goodie bags. Be sure to check out our photo album from the event on Facebook. Next stop: The Snapdragon Gaming World Record Challenge at E3 in Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 5 and Wednesday, June 6. Even if you aren’t competing to break a world record, you can get in on the action at E3 by stopping by our Snapdragon Gaming World Record Challenge booth, located in the Gilbert Lindsey Plaze (in front of the LA Convention Center), to compete in spot challenges and win prizes, including gift cards, Qualcomm T-shirts, free game codes from game developers and more. More importantly, be there to see these gamers make history!
