Take Two Interactive is once again set to offer the first player to pitch a perfect game on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 version of their game $1 million dollars, just as they did with MLB 2K10.

For video game fans who are not also sports fans, a perfect game is a simple concept that is nigh impossible to pull off. A perfect game requires a single pitcher to get all 27 outs without a single player from the enemy team achieving a hit, a walk, a hit batsman, or any reason a player would reach a base safely. This not only relies on the pitcher, but also the fielder.

The rarity of a perfect game is as follows – only 20 have been achieved in the history of major league baseball, and only 18 of these have occurred in the modern era that began in 1900. There have been several “unofficial” perfect games, as well as ten different occasions in which the perfect game was ruined by the 27th batter – the most notable of which possibly being Armando Galarraga’s perfect game that was blown by a bad call from the umpire – a problem that could not occur in MLB 2k11.

Last year, 2K Sports announced that they would offer their $1,000,000 for a perfect game as well, giving until May to win the prize. Wade McGillberry of Mobile, Alabama ended up winning, with Atlanta Braves pitcher Kenshin Kawakami as his character.

The rules are available at 2K Sports website, but here is a brief rundown: First, the game must recorded. The recording must begin at least 5 seconds before turning on the television and the gaming console. The full boot up sequence of the game console must be witnessed, and the player must be logged into the PSN or Xbox Live prior to beginning. The video must be of high enough quality to see the game play out. A verification code will be given to the winner, and this code must be entered into 2k Sports’ website.

While this will not be an easy task, players have a $1 prize to shoot for. The game is already on sale, so players can begin making their attempts now.
