Former Donkey Kong world record holder Billy Mitchell releases official statement

Billy Mitchell

He made his statement to Old School Gamer Magazine and the video in question was uploaded by YouTube user Ryan Burger. 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.

The Donkey Kong champ - whose rivalry with Redmond, Wash. schoolteacher Steve Wiebe was documented in the 2007 release King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters - is embroiled in scandal.

Mitchell has promised to prove his scores are valid. They then forwarded the decision to the Guinness World Records committee so they could follow suit.

The disgraced King of Kong allegedly did wrong, and now he's working to restore his tarnished reputation. '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.

There's no denying that Mitchell is a ridiculously skilled video game player, his ideal Pac-Man score is a mind-boggling feat of memory, patience and pixel-perfect control, but, as this situation continues, the Floridian native risks this recent revelation becoming the defining mark for his entire gaming career. Mitchell claims his process is "true, professional due diligence" as opposed to Twin Galaxies' "shock jock mentality designed to create hits". "We will show that everything was done professionally, according to the rules, according to the scoreboard". "I wish I had it in my hands right now". 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. You absolutely have my commitment to that.

It remains to be seen what sort of evidence Mitchell has at his disposal to prove his innocence, but this will be the continuation of an already enthralling saga.
