Derren Brown hypnotising some guy with a video game, is this for real or staged ? His friends don't seem too worried when he falls asleep standing...

Xargos the POSSIBILITY of this actually being real eXhists, but I would think some pre-show work took place.

Hypnotic states can be triggered by an overload of information but more that likely the subject was placed in a hypnotic state earlier and given a post-hypnotic suggestion attached to a word which could have been subliminally showed upon the video game screen. Also if you watch the entire episode you will better understand that his friends are in on it.

Again it is POSSIBLE.
“Look down at me and you see a fool;
look up at me and you see a god;
look straight at me and you see yourself”

“I'm not your eXecutioner. I'm not your devil and I'm not your God. I'm just The Doktor."

This is what makes the guy so dangerous.

Stop worrying about it and realise it is TV. Probably paid actors. Look at all the money they spent to set that up. Do you really think they would leave ANY possible chance of failure? Of course not. It was going to work. They spent literally hundreds of thousands of dollars to do it, how much more does a few actors cost?

Never forget it is TELEVISION!

Is it possible, does not even come into the equasion.

BUT you are in and out of hypnotic trance ALL DAY. ANYTHING can trigger it. For example driving the same route back and forth for months at a time. One day you get to the destination and don't remember the last few miles? A form of hypnotic trance according to many.

It was setup. There was prework done, or they were actors.

More importantly, which I'm sure you'll figure out if you do the research on how, to do that in that manner without prework/actors would be incredibly stupid. Why? Well if they spent a lot of money arguements don't convince you, you could look at the level of risk involved to a RANDOM individual. When that smount of trance depth is actually achieved from a standing position, the knees tend to relax about as much as neck and balance loss is common. The risk for injury would be high unless someone(s) was a plant,actors, or a decent amount of prework was involved.
