2K Launches Mafia 2 Mini-Game Contest

To help promote the impending release of 2K Czech's Mafia II--the open-world gangster game hits PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 around August 24--publisher 2K Games has kicked off the first of four mini-game competitions through the game's "Story of Frankie Potts" site.

Whoever nets the highest score in the first web-based mini-game--a race to disassemble a car as quickly and efficiently as possible--by June 2 will receive a signed Mafia II pinup calendar, with subsequent mini-games also rewarding the highest score through similar swag.

The really snazzy prizes are reserved for the person with the highest cumulative score across all four mini-games--come August 13, they'll win a PlayStation 3, 60" flat panel television, 7.1 surround sound system and a signed copy of Mafia II.

As for the "Story of Frankie Potts" itself, senior manager of interactive marketing Elizabeth Tobey tells us that the site is meant to help flesh out the world of Mafia II and its three main crime families, complete with some audio recordings by in-game voice actors.

      It's no million dollars for pitching a perfect game though...
