Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His High Scores Getting Removed

Billy Mitchell

You can watch the full statement in the embedded video above.

Billy Mitchell, the man credited with getting the highest ever score in the video games Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Junior, and Pac-Man, and the first to get a flawless score in Pac-Man, has been stripped of his Guinness World Record titles.

But last Friday, Guinness World Records acted in accordance with Twin Galaxies's ruling by scrubbing Mitchell's records with the organization, according to the gaming site Kotaku.

Mitchell's score was disqualified as Twin Galaxies was not able to find sufficient evidence proving that he had not used an emulator to achieve the milestone score, as opposed to a real Donkey Kong arcade cabinet. 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.

Greenwood police arrest man after early morning shooting
A white man in the video is heard saying he was meeting with the men and calls the arrest "ridiculous". Shocking video has emerged of a police officer being body slammed by a man in Surfers Paradise.

Billy Mitchell's Donkey Kong and Pac-Man records have been disqualified by Guinness World Records.

"The fact of the matter is, now there's a true professional due diligence being done to investigate things that happened as far as 35 years ago", he said. He reminds us that he and, presumably, his team will "show that everything was done professionally, according to the rules, according to the scoreboard, and the integrity that was set up". Everything will be transparent, everything will be available, I wish I had it in my hands right now, I wish I could hand it to you. His statement suggests that it might still be a while before we see the evidence he has, as he says it's taken a long time to collect everything. Witnesses, documents, everything will be made available to you.

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. Now, Billy Mitchell has announced that he will be revealing evidence to prove his innocence at a future date that will clear his name.
