Donkey Kong record falls again

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 21, 2010

Steve Wiebe has reclaimed the high score on the planet’s collective Donkey Kong arcade machine; he’s the third player to hold the top spot this year.

Wiebe last held the Donkey Kong record in spring of 2007, only to be bested by his movie rival Billy Mitchell months later. Mitchell’s score fell to New York’s Hank Chien in March of this year, but the Florida hot sauce distributor regained the title on July 31 with a score of 1,062,800 points.

You may recall Weibe’s battle with Mitchell in King of Kong.
