2K Sports let fly with the launch trailer for Major League Baseball 2K12 as the game rolls out in North America today (March 6th). MLB 2K12 is coming out across the board for PC, Playstation 3, XBOX 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Sony PSP, and Playstation 2 . Of course this also brings about the beginning of the $1 Million Perfect Game Challenge that will have MLB players working their skills to compete for the prize money.
From the launch release…
Developed by 2K Sports’ Visual Concepts studio, Major League Baseball 2K12 will once again feature the $1 Million Perfect Game Challenge. This year’s contest, which returns for the third consecutive year and begins on Major League Baseball’s Opening Day, April 4, 2012, elevates the competition by staging a live, eight-person single elimination tournament to determine who walks away with the $1 million grand prize. The finalists will be determined by a dynamic leaderboard ranking the top perfect games thrown. Gamers can repeatedly attempt to improve their position on the leaderboard through April 30, 2012.

“I’m not perfect, but I’ve sure come close,” said Detroit Tiger’s ace pitcher and Major League Baseball 2K12 cover athlete Justin Verlander. “I can’t wait to watch this competition unfold and see who will be the newest inductee into the 2K Sports ‘Perfect Club’ – a club I’m determined to get into myself.”
“Winning this competition is life changing,” said Brian Kingrey, winner of last year’s Perfect Game Challenge. “I was a nervous wreck just trying to pitch a perfect game from home, so I can’t even begin to imagine how the final eight competitors are going to feel. I’m excited to see how the contest plays out.’”
