A Microsoft robot just got the highest all-time score in Ms. Pac-Man

Game over, man.

A Microsoft-made AI system has achieved a perfect score of 999,990 points on the Atari 2600 version of the classic 'Ms. Pac-Man' — making it very likely the first time anybody, human or robot, has "beaten" the game. Ever.

The notion that this is the first time this score has been achieved is backed up by Highscore.com, a resource for tracking high scores in the still-competitive classic arcade gaming scene. Per that site, the highest score ever recorded in this version of "Ms. Pac-Man" was 266,330, by a player in Brazil.

Here's a video of the achievement, including footage of the game resetting when it hits that top score:
