i think so but im not 100%,i played online for about 6 hours and couldnt hang for the other 2 so i just created a private room on live, set status to appear offline, set up 2 player split screen with 2 controllers, 5 min matches and auto start to 30 secends and and went to bed and when i woke up i had the 8 hour achievement

Thats kind of funny they have an achievement that you have to play 8 hours for, especially when in the console manaul it probably has something about how you shouldn't leave the console on for more than X number of hours. I haven't looked at my 360 manaul, but if I remember all the consoles of the past recommend not to leave the console on for more than one hour.

you sure it's you shouldn't play for more than 1hr straight? i've read a lot of my manuals but i never remember seeing something about leaving it on. if there is something about leaving it on i'd be kinda disappointed sad.gif

Yeah, I checked out the XBOX 1 and 360 manuals, neither mention that. The XBOX 1 manual has a line that says "do not leave the consol unattended for several hours", but nothing about how long the console should be on. I know I remember seeing it in older manuals though. Anyhow, I think the only reason that companies put that in there is that they didn't want people playing them hours on end and then dying from overheating before the warranty is up. I know for sure though that one manual did say not to use the consol for more than 1 hour at a time, cause I remember thinking "wow, I don't know anybody who has never played there system for more than one hour".

8 hours of GRAW (or any other game) is a pretty hard achievement.

It doesn't have to be done on XBOX Live. I don't have XBOX Live and I've got it. I just set it to reset a game every 30 seconds and set the play time to 60 minutes when I woke up one day. A little over 8 hours later, it popped up "Committed" and I earned it. It won't be exactly 8 hours because you'll be in the dashboard resetting the games for 30 seconds each time though.

I wish I didn't live in a town of 1000 people so I could get DSL/Cable and get XBOX Live sad.gif

I just used that method last night but it was on Live and a private game. Funny I woke up almost exatly 8 hours after and a minute after I turned on the tv there was the achievement. laugh.gif

I wonder how many people got this by actually falling asleep while playing.

i just realized you should set the matches to 5 min with 30 sec auto start, log into live and make a private room and appear offline, reason i say set it to 5 min( it might take another hour or 2 to get the 8 hour achievement beacuse its more time inthe lobby) but youll rack up way more hosted matches that would count towards the 1000 matches hosted achievement and get the 8 hour achievement along the way
