2K Sports Discloses Perfect Game Activation Around "MLB 2K13"
2K Sports today disclosed plans for its fourth annual $1M Perfect Game Challenge to tie into its upcoming "MLB 2K13" video game release. Under a reorganized competition format, 30 team-specific leaderboards will be established, corresponding to each MLB club and each carrying a $25,000 prize. The top four qualifiers among those 30 club winners will compete in a July tournament in N.Y. during the week of the All-Star Game for a $250,000 grand prize. 2K Sports, after more than two years of its corporate parent Take-Two Interactive tagging its official MLB game license as a significant financial drain, last month announced a one-year pact with MLB, MLBAM and the MLBPA to create "MLB 2K13." The title is slated for release March 5.
