12 hours. With minor breaks for food and the disposal of food.

I've put in another 4 this evening/morning too. Don't think I could handle 6 hours a day everyday though.

it could be fun, but what is the point of playing 6 hours a day if you hit the level cap in 4 hours on the first day....

So these articles where you hear people dying after marathon gaming sessions, they're now being encouraged for a few dollars worth of points? Microsoft should be disgusted with themselves. Working family men, ignore your family for a few MS points. Kids forget doing your school work, play Halo 4 it will help you more in life.

Yes but those people are idiots. six hours a day is far from unachieveable even if you have a job. Most people get home at about 6 and go to bed at about 12 so thats your six hours.

It's also not like MS are encouraging it they're just going to reward people for doing something they'll likely do anyway. PLaying Halo 4. You don't need to ignore your family doing it either. if the whole family pitched in everyone could easily do it if you shared a gamer tag for a month. then you can spend the points on. umm. more halo maps... ok maybe it's not such a great idea.

I like your thinking out of the box approach there Monkey. I should say that whilst I think this is a stupid idea it is in no way trolling Halo 4 for kicks before some miserable sod accuses me of doing that.

Looks like I won't be able to do it since my copy that I pre-ordered from Amazon hasn't been delivered yet >:(

Update:Looks like it arrived today. A day late, but I can finally play it when I get home.

I get home at 6 but I get to bed 10.30-11. I also have a powerful urge to eat dinner and do other things. However if someone does try this and dies, gets divorced, expelled from school, arrested for neglecting the baby then they only have themselves to blame.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Well there is 730 hours in a month. Plenty of time to do it.

I've played almost 160 hours of Skyrim, does that mean I need a life?

If there is anyone who needs a life its you. Sitting behind your computer and attempting to troll people.

People died after Narathon gaming sessions because they

1. Didn't Eat
2. Didn't Drink
3. Didn't sleep.

The game didn't kill them. The lack of the above three things plus the lack of will power to "take a break" killed them.

However I do agree encouraging someone to put 140+ hours in the game for less than £1 worth of MS points is a bit stupid. I'd rather work and then get a big pay off at the end of the month.

If you did it in one day then yes, yes you do. You also need to destroy your delorean.

I unfortunately will not be able to achieve this as I have a job and a wife i.e. no time + no access to TV when soaps are on.

How can you play 140 hours in one day if a day only has 24? It took me months to get there actually, as for the Delorean ..... :( I can't get it up to 88MPH or I'll get a speeding ticket
