Take-Two, the developers of MLB 2k10 is offering a million dollars to the first person on the Xbox 360 or PS3 (Sorry no PC, you cheats and hacks!), who can pitch a perfect game in the first 60 days of the game’s release beginning March 2, 2010 at 12:01 AM PST and ending on May 2, 2010 at 11:59 PM PDT.
Two stipulations exist of course for your once in a life time shot at one million dollars: You have to play against the CPU in MLB Today mode, where it will automatically default to all of the proper game play settings; and you have to record yourself pitching the entire perfect game and put it onto a DVD.
2K Sports has also enlisted legendary Twin Galaxies to help authentication the feat. For complete rules, head on over to 2k Sports. MLB 2K10 releases on the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and PC on March 2, 2010.
Personally I’ve never been a fan of the MLB 2k series. Having own MLB 2k9 and logging in all about six hours of total play time, I can attest that it’s one of the worse baseball games I’ve ever played. 2K10 promises a lot of change, so I guess only time will tell. If the game tanks and the critics bash it yet again, not even a two million dollar prize is going to move this game off store shelves.
