$1 Million 'Perfect Game' Contest Returns in MLB 2K11

If you accidentally tossed a meatball in the ninth in MLB 2K10, blowing your chances to win the $1 million 'perfect game' contest, you might be glad to hear that it's back.

If you fancy a cool millie, all you'll need to do is be the first person to pitch a perfect game in Major League Baseball 2K11--not letting a single opposing player touch base--starting from MLB Opening Day on April 11. Last year's winning game was pitched on the very first day by one Wade McGilberry, on only his fifth attempt.

The contest will only run on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, though the game by 2K Sports' studio Visual Concepts will also hit PC, PS2, PSP and Wii when it launches on March 8.

MLB 2K10 has also now been reduced to only $29.99, which 2K says is so "gamers can begin their pre-season workout" for the "intense competition" but we suspect might have more to do with clearing stock. Call us cynical, if you will.

As to what 2K11 will add to the baseball franchise, 2K has released a trailer trumpeting its major features--new player models, improved fielding and "so much more."
