A variety of broadcasts are taking place across numerous websites as part of the new BurgerTime World Tour launch on XBox Live tomorrow, all in conjunction with studio Monkey Paw Games.

Among them will be a live world record attempt on the classic NES version of BurgerTime from Connecticut, live play between champion gamers and the game developers, live challenges and costume contests in the Chicago area and more.

A full list of activities and where you can watch them can be found at this link: http://shar.es/biqW9

Also if anyone is in northern Illinois or the area, Star Worlds Arcade is having a release party. Tournaments on the original BurgerTime and free play on all machines will be going on.

Only wish I could be there. :(

Eric killed it live... racking up 680,100 points (previous record was 225k).

I also acted as a ringer for the guys at Mash Tactics. They thought they were taking on a BurgerTime World Tour developer, but I was a ringer instead. Funny reactions. http://youtu.be/C4cBC9DX-dU

Ditto this -- nice to see Eric prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is a stud on the NES!

Little late due to Eric being out of town for a while right after his game, but here he is getting a little media love for his accomplishment.
