Another Millionaire Pitcher in MLB2K11

Remember all of those times you Mum yelled at you for playing video games all day and said you were wasting your time? Yeah well, one happy gamer gets to ring his Mum and say "Neener Neener Neener!"

2K Sports announced today that the next million dollar winner has been confirmed for the Major League Baseball 2K11 Perfect Game Challenge. The winner, who will be revealed on Thursday, May 26th, will take home $1 million and a lifetime's worth of bragging rights for being the first person to pitch a verified perfect game in Major League Baseball 2K11.

This year's champion is the second overall winner of the million dollar prize, following Wade McGilberry, who achieved perfection in last year's Major League Baseball 2K10 Perfect Game Challenge.

The winning Perfect Game Challenge video was the first submission to be verified in this highly competitive contest, which began on April 1st, 2011. 2K Sports worked with Twin Galaxies, an official scorekeeping organization, to verify the entry and conducted its own in-house examination of the footage and game data to confirm the legitimacy of the perfect game.

"It took a tremendous amount of dedication and focus for this year's winner to pull off perfection in Major League Baseball 2K11," said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. "I hope the winner is ready to enter a new tax bracket, because we're excited to make good on our million dollar promise for the second year in a row."

The Major League Baseball 2K11 Perfect Game Challenge officially ended on Monday, May 16th, following verification of the submitted footage. 2K Sports will no longer accept video submissions, although fans are encouraged to watch for the formal announcement of the winner later this month.

"We made several improvements in this year's title to make things more challenging for the contenders," said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports. "Itís truly an impressive feat for someone to master our upgraded pitching mechanics and overcome the pressure of pitching a perfect game in Major League Baseball 2K11. Congratulations to our winner, this prize was well earned."
