Another Crowning Achievement for Fan Convention

Summer of Sonic founder Svend Joscelyne is still checking on it to be sure, but for the moment, the Sonic fan convention he started can add another high honor to its list of breakthroughs for the Sonic community.

Today, Mashable published ten factoids from the newly published Guinness World Records 2014: Gamer’s Edition.  Among the highlights is a new recognition for First Official Fan Convention Featuring a Video Game Character, with Summer of Sonic, now and presumably forever, earning the honor.

Mashable’s writeup, however, confuses SOS with the Japanese Summer Sonic convention.  As far as we know, the 2014 Summer of Sonic will still take place in the UK later this year.  We will continue to update with developments on that front when warranted, but in the meantime, congratulations are in order to all involved with organizing the annual UK Sonic fan gathering.
