MLB 2K12 Perfect Game Challenge Winner Announced
2K games has announced the winner of the MLB 2K12 Perfect Game Challenge. 21-year-old Melbourne, Florida resident Chistopher Gilmore (pictured above) was awarded the 1 million dollar prize for triumphing in a live, single-elimination tournament at the MLB Fan Cave in NYC. And he apparently didn’t cheat, which is a novelty for the MLB 2K12 community. The tournament involved the top 8 ranked players, who qualified with at least 900 verified perfect games. 1 million attempts were apparently made. Damn.
Gilmore will be feted in a 30 minute special airing on Spike TV May 24. His prize money will be presented by model Kate Upton, which doesn’t seem to make any sense, but whatevs. It’s Spike TV. I guess just roll with it. In a statement, 2K Marketing VP Jason Argent said “Winning this year’s Perfect Game Challenge is an amazing achievement that required great skill and composure in an intense tournament atmosphere. Chris is incredibly deserving of the $1 million prize; he certainly earned it by beating some really stiff competition.”
