Playing 8,550 Perfect Games of Wii Sports Bowling. John Bates bowled more than 8.500 perfect games (score 300 points on bowling) of Wii Sports bowling. Oh, and he’s 85 years old and he’s a Guinness World Record holder
In October 2010, Bates received the Guinness World Record for scoring 300 points on Wii Sports bowling 2,850 times since 2008. Less than a year later, by August 2011, he was up to 8,850 perfect games. At this rate, he’ll reach figures beyond what mortal numbers can keep track of pretty soon.
Bates says he plays between 10 and 21 games a day, the rest of the day I spend on GTA. It helps that he’s an actual bowler, but even then, his best score at the real thing is only 281. The secret is in how you grab the controller: Bates says he “got up from 22 percent strikes to nearly 90 percent” when he started holding the Wii remote with both hands.
Wii Sports bowling. It’s an incredibly fun game, but most of us probably just laughed our asses off playing it with friends a few times and then put it in the back of the closet.

A Dutch teenager has been arrested for allegedly stealing $6.000 worth of virtual furniture from “rooms” in the social-networking site Habbo Hotel.
A seventeen year-old boy stole almost $6000 worth of virtual furniture in the online game Habbo Hotel. Habbo Hotel is a virtual world where people can create houses and other scenarios, but the items need to be purchased with real money.
The company alleged that the boy, with the help of some friends, created a website to lure other players into revealing their passwords. After that it was just a matter of logging into the game and transferring the furniture into his own room.
The lines between “virtual” and “reality” continue to blur. At first glance, the idea of stealing virtual furniture from Habbo Hotelseems ludicrous. But, the furniture was paid for with real money.
It would be a perfect crime, except that the police was called and the boy was arrested.
