Mitchell has been a big name in gaming for decades, holding several world record scores. The dispute alleged that Mitchell achieved his scores on an emulator and not original hardware, which opens the door to cheating through a variety of methods.
The investigation, carried out by Twin Galaxies - the organization that records video game high scores - found that the scores recorded by Mitchell had not been attained on a genuine arcade machine, as he had claimed. Speaking to Old School Gamer Magazine, for which Mitchell serves as an advisor, he asserts that all will come to light. After concluding its investigation, also utilizing additional information gleaned from a third-party source which Mitchell had cooperated with, Twin Galaxies responded by stripping Mitchell of his scores and titles. The more damning implication is that Mitchell-previously credited with being the first to score a ideal game on Pac-Man and the first to crack 1 million points on Donkey Kong-faked his games. The fact of the matter is, now there's a true professional due diligence being done to investigate things that happened as far [back] as 35 years ago.
