The Million-Dollar Perfect Game Returns in MLB 2K11
Last year, @K Sports had a promotion for Major League Baseball 2K10 in which the first person to throw a perfect game — and film it — would get a million bucks. It happened on release day. I guess the gimmick sold a bunch of copies of the game for 2K, because they’re bringing it back in 2k11.
There are a few changes to the contest, however. First, while the game will be out on March 8, the contest won’t begin until April 1, which is MLB’s Opening Day (why would you play video game baseball on Opening Day?). Second, the age requirement has been lowered from 18 to 13. 2K’s Christ Snyder said they made the change because last year the son of that douchebag Roy Halladay (pictured, and f———————–k youuuuuuuuuuu), who was 13, was all pumped about getting the prize, and he apparently even had a perfect game through seven innings on the game’s release day*.
So that’s that. Time to start preparing a training regimen and planning that whole weekend. Go ahead and ask off from work on 4/1 (a Friday), which you should probably do anyway since it’s Opening Day, man.
*Come on, kid, your dad could write you a check for $1 million write now if he wants to, and that would be tax-free, at least. Know that if you pull it off this year, everyone will hate you forever.
