Okay Donkey Kong game enthusiasts, here's the incredible, amazing, and hold your breath announcement:

Billy Mitchell has broken his silence.

 

The longtime Donkey Kong champ, never one to stay quiet for long, pushed back Sunday against official scorekeepers' decisions last week to strip him of his best-known video game records. Twin Galaxies, the organization that tracks such records, disqualified his high scores and banned him from competition after an investigation turned up evidence that several of his Donkey Kong scores were set on inappropriate hardware.

This is just what Microsoft did with their on line gaming.  They added a hardware scanner to insure that your hardware does not exceed their parameters.  If your hardware has been modified, like an Xbox360 or Xbox1 or a PC imitating a console, the network will refuse you entry.  Modified hardware in an open competition is cheating and the governing body has the right to exclude any players or hardware.
