Disgraced King of Kong Cheater Billy Mitchell Vows to Prove His Innocence

Disgraced King of Kong Cheater Billy Mitchell Vows to Prove His Innocence

You can check out his full statement in the video above.

Mitchell has been a big name in gaming for decades, holding several world record scores.

It appears that he was actually playing the games on a Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME), which is against Twin Galaxy Rules, and a video of the record-breaking game of Donkey Kong shows transitions between levels which are not possible on an original arcade machine.

As reported by Eurogamer, Mitchell released the following statement through Old School Gamer Magazine, a publication he is affiliated with.

Previously, American organization Twin Galaxies had conducted an investigation into Mitchell's scores after allegations emerged that the subject of the King of Kong documentary had, in fact, been utilizing emulation software known as MAME to achieve the scores earned in that very documentary.

Billy Mitchell's Donkey Kong and Pac-Man records have been disqualified by Guinness World Records. "Twin Galaxies was the original source of verification for these record titles and in line with their decision to remove all of Mr. Mitchell's records from their system, we have disqualified Mr. Mitchell as the holder of these two records".

Mitchell's video finds him a vision of solemnity, stating that he's been asked to address "things that are recently in the media". Mitchell claims his process is "true, professional due diligence" as opposed to Twin Galaxies' "shock jock mentality designed to create hits". "I wish I had it in my hands right now". But it's taken a considerable amount of time.

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. We'll see hopefully see if what he has is enough to prove his scores are legitimate soon, so stay tuned.
