US student breaks GTA IV record

By one minute...

An American student from Tennessee has broken the time-record for completing Rockstar behemoth GTA IV. David Scherer broken the previous best by a minute.

The previous record of 40 hours 20 minutes was held by an Indian equity broker called Chirantan Patnaik, but this previous benchmark has now been pipped.

Speaking on US TV (thanks Kotaku), Scherer also said that he completed more of the game than the previous record holder, only going to the toilet three times in the process.

Scherer undertook the record to raise money for his swimming team, who want to build an indoor pool.
