Billy Mitchell Releases Video Responding to Donkey Kong High Score Controversy

Billy Mitchell Releases Video Responding to Donkey Kong High Score Controversy”

Instead of admitting any wrongdoing after the verdict was passed, Mitchell instead released his own video at the Midwest Gaming Classic show claiming that not only are his scores real, but he's gathering evidence to prove his case.

Yesterday, we reported on the recent situation regarding famed gamer Billy Mitchell and the recent scrubbing of his Donkey Kong high score from the record books. However, his expertise came into question earlier this year as evidence shows that he was cheating using an emulator to attain high scores.

"The rules for submitting scores for the original arcade Donkey Kong competitive leader boards requires the use of original arcade hardware only", the organization said in a statement.

"The Guinness World Records titles relating to Mr. Mitchell's highest scores on Donkey Kong have all been disqualified due to Twin Galaxies being our source of verification for these achievements", a Guinness representative told the web site. As such, Billy Mitchell was no longer considered the high score holder, with Steve Wiebe taking his place as the first official million point record holder. 'All the things that were happening at the time... like why he didn't come out and play me, and why he was inciting whose records were going to be authenticated and who's were going to be dropped.

"Everything was done professionally, according to the rules, according to the integrity that was set up". I wish I had it in my hands right now, I wish I could hand it to you. Witnesses, documents, everything will be made available to you, ' said Mitchell.

Essentially, the Donkey Kong record he broke wasn't on a Donkey Kong machine, and that ain't cool, but also he might not have broken it anyway, and that's even less cool. For now, we'll have to wait and see what evidence and witnesses Mitchell can produce.
