Can you be the next Wade McGilberry? Don’t remember Wade? Well, last year he won $1,000,000 from 2K Sports by being the first person to pitch a perfect game in MLB 2K10. 2K Sports is at it again with MLB 2k11‘s Perfect Your Game challenge.
While all of the official rules aren’t out yet, it can be expected that they will be roughly the same as last year. Most likely you’ll need to use a camera to record yourself playing in the ever changing MLB Today mode. After pitching a perfect game, you’ll need to burn a DVD of your performance and send it into 2K Sports or Twin Galaxies, their official record verifier. For all the official rules head over to 2K Sports’ Perfect Your Game page.
It may seem like a lot of work, but for $1,000,000 it seems worth it. As with last year, even though Wade pitched the perfect game on the day of its release, 2K kept it under wraps until May, to try to push sales by giving people a false sense of hope.
After a year of Major League Baseball where Dallas Braden and MLB 2K11 cover athlete Roy Halladay both threw perfect games, lets not forget Armando Gallaraga’s notable nearly-perfect game, its a pretty good guess that the first perfect game of MLB 2k11 will be pitched on launch day.
If you’re up for the challenge, we wish you luck, if you happen to throw one, let us know in the comments below.
While MLB 2K11 releases on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PSP and DS on March 8th, this competition is only available to Xbox 360 and PS3 players.
