Twin Galaxies that is currently under new management has officially stripped Donkey Kong record holder Billy Mitchell of all high score records after an exhaustive investigation that concluded that his game play was fabricated using MAME software emulation instead of directly from an arcade PCB (printed circuit board).

Twin Galaxies has also notified Guiness World Records of Billy Mitchell's score removal and has officially recognized Steven Weibe as the first million point record holder as Mr. Weibe was competing against Billy Mitchell in the documentary film "King of Kong - A Fistfull of Quarters"

Wow. Sucks to be Billy Mitchell right now, but that is what you get for cheating.

You know, I'm rather relieved that they are enforcing the standards they had set, and are willing to scrutinize unwitnessed performances.

:welldone:

But shame on Billy Mitchell for attempting to pull a fast one.
