"And the rules are simple: 2K Sports is going to give the million bucks to the first person who can throw a perfect game against the CPU on All-Star difficulty starting March 2, 2010 at 12:01 AM PST and ending May 2, 2010 at 11:59 PM PDT. Eligible games can only be played on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in MLB Today mode playing one of the available match-ups. Then, when gamers choose to play the Major League Baseball 2K10 contest from the menu, the game will automatically default to the proper gameplay setting in accordance to the official rules."

It'll be done within an hour of release. Someone will edit the opposing teams stats, sliders, keep it on All-Star and get it. Cool idea, but it should be a pool of everyone who does it for say a month or something.

I highly doubt it will be that easy when $1 mil is involved. They will be monitoring it on lockdown.

Some funny marketing though.

Wouldn't the fact that it must be played via the MLB Today feature eliminate this possibility?

Granted I don't know the ins and outs of the MLB Today feature, so it could very well be possible to manipulate the system.

Whats funny about it? Sounds pretty sweet to me.

Would be cool if a fellow OS'er won the contest.

You could still alter sliders at least. Not sure if rosters can be.

I'm still betting anything it's accomplished the first day.

EDIT - nevermind, just read that it's in the menu and defaults to special settings for it. My bad (reading usually helps. LOL).

Still it's done first day.

The contest is only for one day. And it is chosen on a contest screen, so you may have to play with what is given, it says everything resets if you try and alter.

So who knows... they obviously know something about their game, where it isn't as easy as you would think, to just hand away $1 mil. (Even if it is sponsored money)

Its going to be entertaining reading some of the threads that will be posted here by fellow OS'ers as they partake in this quest.

LOL, it's almost like I read a completely different article.

I swore it said March 2nd through April 2nd the first time I read it.

Oh well, I'll walk away slowly from this thread as I obviously know nothing of what I'm talking about. LMAO

Carry on..LOL

In addition, all entries must be recorded via camera or digital video recorder, and entrants must submit a copy of their recording on DVD in its entirety for verification.
Wow...I thought they would have something in game that would alert them to someone succeeding in the challenge. So not only must you be the first to accomplish this feat, but you must also be the first to submit it to 2k via DVD.

Still though...its a hell of an opportunity.

Can you imagine if you're one out away from the first perfect game and a computer guy makes an error (like a passed ball by the catcher)?

Or the ball goes through the glove of the outfielders like 2K9.

I think people would wig out!

It is obviously not going to be easy.

Thats why I said this forum is going to be quite entertaining come release day, while this challenge is in effect.

There are going to be some angry, pissed off people I'm afraid.

I hate the 2k baseball series but this makes me want to get it. As an MLB the Show fan, I never get it but this makes me want to. But think about it, an easily manipulated thing like a video game and a clear cut promo to try to beat the Show by giving away $1,000,000? C'mon guys, the fix is in!
 
# 19 ExtremeGamer @ 01/28/10 09:24 AM
I've never thrown a perfecto in a baseball game in my life (did it in Bigs 2, but that doesn't count). I've thrown 2 or 3 no-hitters, but nothing recent.

No chance I win the million..and if I did get it rolling, I can guarantee you I'd have the lens cap on the camcorder anyway. LOL

There is no way anyone wins this, they will make the settings so hard that it will be impossible.
By the way are you guys really going to record every game you play?
