Billy Mitchell responds to Kongtroversy, claims he can prove scores were legitimate

Billy Mitchell Finally Speaks on His Twin Galaxies Ban

Mitchell earned the nickname "King of Kong", and also featured in a 2007 documentary of the same name about the world of competitive video gaming.

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. "Guinness World Records will look to update and find the appropriate holder of these records in the next few days", it said in a statement. The group, Twin Galaxies of Iowa, concluded after a lengthy investigation that Billy Mitchell did not play on an original arcade machine as required but instead used a software "emulator".

"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. Speaking to Old School Gamer Magazine, for which Mitchell serves as an advisor, he asserts that all will come to light.

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

I've been asked to address things that are recently in the media. "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". 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. He says that it will take time for him to gather evidence supporting his claims of legitimacy and as he does he will do so with professionalism. Witnesses, documents, everything will be made available to you.

While Mitchell making a new attempt at the Donkey Kong world record would have been a more entertaining, if dramatic response, this story clearly isn't over just yet.
