We all know that the iPhone 4 is a properly good piece of tech and that people want to get their hands on the device. Now we have confirmation from the Guinness World Records, confirmation that the iPhone 4 is a big commercial success.

In the Guinness World Records 2011 Gamers Edition, the iPhone 4 is named as the holder of the Fastest-selling Portable Gaming System record. A staggering 1.5 million iPhone 4s were sold in the first day the device was rolled out to the market (it hit the market back in June 2010). When the PSP was rolled out back in 2005, only 200,000 units were sold in the first day.

It isn’t the iPhone 4 alone who got recognized in the Guinness World Records 2011 Gamers Edition – Apple’s App Store was recognized as well. The App Store, which is host to more than 250,000 apps, more than 37,000 games and recorded more than 6.5 billion downloads since its launch, is the holder of the Most Popular Application Marketplace record and the Largest Downloadable Video Game Store record and the Largest Launch Line-up of Any Gaming System.

Fun fact: 61 apps hosted by the App Store are flatulence simulators – farting apps.

"The release of the iPhone has not just changed the mobile industry, but the video game world too," says Gaz Deaves, Guinness World Records Gaming Editor. "With the never-ending App Store selection and an intuitive device, Apple has created a gigantic new space for itself in the casual games genre that literally brings entertainment to users wherever they may be."

Here are some other record holders mentioned in the Guinness World Records 2011 Gamers Edition:
Angry Birds – Top Paid-For App Store Game in Most Countries
Plants vs. Zombies – Fastest-Selling iPhone/iPod Strategy Game
Tap Tap Revenge – Most Popular iPhone Game Series
Frotz – First Text Adventure Engine for iPhone
Enigmo – First Physics-Based Puzzle Game on iPhone.
