Twin Galaxies was not able to say definitively whether this is true.
Video game records tracking organization Twin Galaxies announced on Thursday that it will no longer recognize Billy Mitchell's high scores after verifying a claim that his Donkey Kong high scores were not achieved on arcade hardware. 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. We also recognize records for First ideal score on Pac-Man and Highest score on Pac-Man.
Mitchell previously held the record for being the first to score one million points in Donkey Kong. "Guinness World Records will look to update and find the appropriate holder of these records in the next few days".
This is another big blow to the once well-regarded, though hated, gamer who rose to the public eye via the documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.
Moreover, the game's legacy endures in part because of the competitive community surrounding it, with players across the world aiming to obtain the highest score. "Billy put himself in this position", said world-record holder Tim McVey of Oskaloosa and formerly of Ottumwa, "by continually stepping on, and overshadowing fellow gamers.many with far more talent and skill.in order to stay on top and remain the focal point". As of yet, Mitchell hasn't commented on Twin Galaxies' and Guinness' decision.
