Major League Baseball 2K10 Get Ready To Battle Trailer »


If you fancy yourself a jim-dandy of a pill hurler, then 2K Sports has a challenge for you. Starting on March 2, gamers will be able to take part in 2K’s $1,000,000 Major League Baseball 2K10 contest, which will give the aforementioned sum of cash to the first person to pitch a perfect game in the latest PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 installment in the series.

The contest lasts until May 2, but I’m going to bet that someone does it within the first two weeks. Now before you start with all the, “Oh, I’ll just put it on Rookie, tweak the hell out of the AI, and $1,000,000 is mine!” talk, 2K has some requirements that you need to know about.

"To compete, gamers must play in MLB Today mode, select from any of the available matchups, and then choose the option to participate in the ‘Major League Baseball 2K10 contest' that will automatically default to the proper gameplay settings according to the official gameplay rules.”

There are also guidelines for video recording your spectacular achievement as well, so be sure to read the fine print if you plan on participating. And just to make the whole accomplishment all the more official, 2K has teamed up with video game record authority Twin Galaxies International, which means the winner will also earn a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records: Gamers Edition in addition to the cool million. Not bad for a day at the virtual ballpark, eh?


Oh, and it’s a brilliant way to get people to play your game. How many people are going to at least rent the game now that a $1 million is on the line? Granted, unless you have a PlayStation 3, baseball fans don’t have a choice in terms of which baseball game they play, but just think of all those people who would never have played the game in the first place who will now probably rent it just to see if they can pull it off? Also, I’m not saying 2K has rigged the game in some way, but for some reason the first thing that came to mind when I heard about this was a carnival game. “Step right up! Step right up! Just knock down all the bottles and the giant teddy bear is yours!” But that could just be because I love carnivals.

Anyone here planning to take on this challenge? Anyone thrown a perfect game in a baseball game before? How long do you think it will take for someone to win the $1 million?
