Legendary video arcade games player Billy Mitchell will be wiped from the gaming industry's official list of record high scores.
List maintainers Twin Galaxies announced on Thursday they will remove all of Mitchell's high scores from their books, including his once-world-beating three million-point Donkey Kong scores, and will ban him from future inclusion.
Mitchell, best known for appearing in the 2007 documentary King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, was accused of recording his high scores on modified hardware, possibly with the assistance of Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) software. The video below shows evidence of Mitchell using MAME rather than real hardware.
