Donkey Kong champion loses title for 'using emulator'

The Donkey Kong world champion has been stripped of a record he set for the 1981 arcade classic following claims he did not use an original machine.

As well as conducting its own investigation, Twin Galaxies said it had taken into account at least two different third-party inquiries which came to "identical conclusions".

It concluded: "With this ruling, Twin Galaxies can no longer recognise Billy Mitchell as the first million-point Donkey Kong record holder. "

It said that record would now be bestowed on another gamer, Steve Wiebe.
