Comic Con ‘07: King of Kong Kontest

d20_4206.jpg

The booth for the King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters featured classic Donkey Kong arcade machines so that attendees could play and record their high score. The winner would then be crowned the "King of Kong" (of the Komic Kon). If you're not familiar with King of Kong, it's an upcoming documentary film about two legendary arcade gamers, Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe, who competed against each other to beat the high score in Donkey Kong. Billy, who we recently interviewed at the Pac-Man World Championships, is a hot sauce mogul while Steve is a middle school science teacher. See King of Kong in theaters on August 17th and make the jump to view the trailer.
