MLB 2K13 Perfect Game Challenge Underway
2K Sports today announced the start of MLB 2K13’s Perfect Game Challenge. Starting today, April 1st at 9:00:01 a.m. PDT, players can start their journey towards baseball perfection in MLB 2K13 through the contest’s close on April 30th at 11:59:59 PDT.
This year’s contest features more ways to win than ever before, as players can compete to win up to 30 $25,000 prize pools, one per MLB team, with a combined prize of $750,000 being divided among the 30 pools. Competitors will need to monitor the Perfect Game Challenge leaderboards to ensure they maintain their ranking as new high scores are added. By using pitchers from different MLB teams, there is no limit on the number of $25,000 team prizes one player can win.
Once the competition window closes on April 30th, the top four Overall Leaderboard finalists with top ranked and verified perfect games achieved on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will compete in a single-elimination tournament during MLB All-Star Week in New York for the $250,000 grand prize.
For the second year in a row, 2K Sports’ proprietary algorithm will rank individual perfect games based on difficulty (such as the opposing team’s offensive prowess and selected pitcher’s skill) and degree of perfection (such as number of strikeouts and pitching efficiency).
