Billy Mitchell Releases Statement On His Disqualified Records

Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His High Scores Getting Removed

Several of Mitchell's high scores were disputed earlier this year by a forum poster claiming he used an emulator to record his scores, rather than a standard arcade cabinet.

Billy Mitchell, newly disgraced arcade gaming champion and star of the documentary King of Kong, has issued a statement following last week's revelation that his Donkey Kong score, and indeed all his other record breaking arcade scores, had been disqualified after a lengthy investigation by Twin Galaxies. 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 promised to prove his scores are valid.

Following this decision, Guinness World Records has also disqualified Mitchell as the holder of two Pac-Man records: highest score and first ideal score.

"We also recognise records for First ideal score on Pac-Man and Highest score on Pac-Man".

Even Non-Facebook Users Are Safe From Facebook Tracking
If we are going to continue to use Facebook , as users we must also learn how to crackdown on the site and protect ourselves. Not all users are outraged by the fact that someone got hold of their data and used it inappropriately.

A formal dispute was filed in February against Mitchell's high score. Throughout Twin Galaxies' review process, Mitchell held his tongue even though he had the opportunity to defend himself. Now, Mitchell has made a decision to respond to the investigation and seems content on proving that he did not cheat.

"We now believe that they are not from an original unmodified" Donkey Kong machine, Twin Galaxies said in their statement.

Mitchell is one the highest-profile gamers in the world due to his list of records. He also was featured in the 2007 documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.

Billy Mitchell has released a statement, promising that he will set the records straight with documents and witnesses.

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, we will show that everything that has been done, everything was done professionally, according to the rules, according to the scoreboard, the integrity that was set up.
