MLB 2K12 demo released today...and something about winning a million dollars

Posted by: Russell at 2/28/2012 4:40 PM
2K Sports has announced that the demo for MLB 2K12 is now available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network.  The demo features the Texas Rangers vs. the St. Louis Cardinals in a rematch of the 2011 World Series, and showcases some of the game's improved features, including the dynamic tendencies system that will adjust the pitcher and batter ratings as the game progresses, as well as a revamped throwing system and a new hit distribution system with more realistic hit types.

And of course, what new MLB game would be complete without the chance to win a million dollars?  For the third straight year, The Perfect Game Challenge is back.  This time, the challenge will utilize a dynamic leaderboard that ranks the top eight perfect games thrown and at the end of the competition, the top eight will face each other in a live $1 million tournament.  That I'd love to see.  The competition runs from 9pm PST on April 4th through 11:59pm PST on April 30th.
