It took a little longer than I expected but it looks like we have a winner of the $1 million prize for throwing a legitemate perfect game in Major League Baseball 2K10.
The winner will be revealed on the CBS' The Early Show on Wednesday.
The game was released on March 2nd so it took about 2 months for the feat to happen. I'd be interested to see how they tracked it, what system it was done on, and how many people came close to the feat if they have that on hand. Glad to see someone was able to accomplish the feat and make a cool $1 million off of it.
