Cocky and confident in their new pitching system in their latest MLB edition, 2K Sports is hosting an unprecedented competition where the gamer skilled enough to pitch a perfect game, could walk away $1,000,000 richer.
“You don’t see too many perfect games thrown in MLB 2K, but we’ve seen it happen,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing at 2K Sports. “Our goal is to celebrate and highlight Major League Baseball 2K10’s superior pitching and hitting mechanics this season, while also giving one of our loyal fans the thrilling opportunity to be rewarded with a lot of money.”
“Every baseball fan knows pitching a perfect game is one of the most difficult and rarest accomplishments in all of sports, and that’s what makes this million dollar contest so compelling,” said Evan Longoria, All-Star third baseman for the Tampa Bay Rays and cover athlete for Major League Baseball 2K10. “This is the chance of a lifetime, and I’m excited to see fans really try to go for it in Major League Baseball 2K10. I just hope they don’t try against the Rays, because my teammates and I aren’t going to make it easy on them.”
The contest begins the minute after MLB 2K10 is released on March 2nd and allows you your own personal Grapefruit and Cactus League up until May 2nd. The fine print says all submissions must be on a DVD so make that trip to Radio Shack® if need be after camping out at Gamestop®.
Better get that ice ready if you’re attempting this on the Nintendo Wii.
