2K Sports announced today the start of Major League Baseball 2K12's $1 Million Perfect Game Challenge, which will end on April 30, 2012. Eight finalists who achieve perfection will earn an all-expense-paid trip to New York City in May to compete in a live, single elimination tournament at the MLB FanCave to determine who walks away with the $1 million grand prize.
The eight finalists will be determined by a dynamic leaderboard ranking the 'most perfect' games thrown. 2K Sports will use an algorithm to rank individual perfect games based on degree of difficulty (such as the opposing team’s offensive prowess and selected pitcher's skill) and degree of perfection (number of strikeouts, pitching efficiency). The top eight qualified gamers with ranked and verified perfect games achieved on Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network will compete in the final tournament May 9-10 in New York City at the MLB FanCave.
Access to the $1 Million Perfect Game Challenge mode for eligible players is available on copies of MLB 2K12/NBA 2K12 Combo Pack in addition to stand-alone copies of Major League Baseball 2K12.
