Former Donkey Kong world record holder Billy Mitchell releases official statement

Last week, pro arcade gamer Billy Mitchell was stripped of his world-record high scores on Donkey Kong and Pac-Man after Twin Galaxies launched an investigation and determined he violated guidelines in attaining his high scores.

Since Twin Galaxies only accepts records set on original games that have not been altered in any way, it banned Mitchell from competition, and the decision subsequently invalidated his standing with the Guinness World Records, which relies on Galaxies to verify video game world records. Due to his use of an emulator, his high scores have been removed from the Guinness World Records as well as the Twin Galaxies website. "The use of MAME or any other emulation software for submission to these leader boards is strictly forbidden".

Even though there is evidence of him not playing the arcade games fairly, Billy Mitchell has now released a video statement claiming his innocence on the matter.

Mitchell has promised to prove his scores are valid.

In February, Twin Galaxies fielded a complaint by another gamer challenging three of Mitchell's scores.

Following this decision, Guinness World Records has also disqualified Mitchell as the holder of two Pac-Man records: highest score and first flawless score. For now, we'll have to wait and see what evidence and witnesses Mitchell can produce. The gamer questioned whether Mitchell actually earned the marks on an arcade machine. Now, Mitchell has chose to respond to the investigation and seems content on proving that he did not cheat. "O$3 ur investigation of the tape content ends with that conclusion and assertion".

In addition, Steve Wiebe, who featured in King of Kong alongside Mitchell as the protagonist of the documentary (for lack of a better term), has also also spoken out in light of the controversy.

Over the weekend, Mitchell addressed the ruling in a video posted to YouTube. In a professional manner, not in a shock-jock mentality designed to create hits.
