Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His High Scores Getting Removed

Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His High Scores Getting Removed

Mitchell, featured in the documentary The King of Kong, has always been considered a master of the arcade, having once held world records in Pac-Man and, of course, Donkey Kong, for which he was thought to be the first player to gain one-million points. After concluding its investigation, also utilizing additional information gleaned from a third-party source which Mitchell had cooperated with, Twin Galaxies responded by stripping Mitchell of his scores and titles.

You can check out his full statement in the video above.

Last week, Twin Galaxies, the organization that referees classic arcade scores, announced it had determined that some of Mitchell's records were not attained on actual arcade machines but by using the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME), or software which replicates the games - a violation of Twin Galaxies' rules. The registry was founded by Walter Day in1982 and has always been recognized as a reputable source of verified high scores by the gaming community and by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Mitchell has been a big name in gaming for decades, holding several world record scores. But it's taken a considerable amount of time.

Mitchell's video finds him a vision of solemnity, stating that he's been asked to address "things that are recently in the media".

The disgraced King of Kong allegedly did wrong, and now he's working to restore his tarnished reputation. Mitchell claims his process is "true, professional due diligence" as opposed to Twin Galaxies' "shock jock mentality designed to create hits". I wish I had it in my hands right now, I wish I could hand it to you. For now, we'll have to wait and see what evidence and witnesses Mitchell can produce. The filmed followed Kong player Steve Wiebe's attempt to beat Mitchell's record on Donkey Kong.
