Before setting off to claim a million-dollar bounty offered by MLB 2K11, Brian Kingrey did an analysis. He pored over batting averages, compared pitcher strengths and tendencies, examined the probable starters for the contest's opening day and the batting orders they faced, to determine what hurler had the best chance…
When 2K Sports vowed to declare a winner in its second Million-Dollar Perfect Game contest as soon as a winner could be verified, most assumed we'd have heard of a winner in April. Last year's inaugural challenge was won on the very first day, as a matter of fact.
About two weeks ago, someone uploaded a video purporting to show the final inning of a successful perfect game in MLB 2K11 which, if legitimate, will claim a $1 million prize offered by 2K Sports. In it, the player throws nothing but high curveballs, a strategy that wouldn't get you out of the first inning of a real…
Yesterday someone uploaded a YouTube video purporting to show him completing 2K Sports' Million Dollar Perfect Game Challenge in MLB 2K11. While it's confirmation of nothing, it may signal another early end to the game's sweepstakes promotion. [Warning: The audio gets very loud and NSFW after the final out.]
2K Sports has laid another seven-figure bounty on a perfect game thrown in its Major League Baseball game. Players have had about a month to practice with MLB 2K11's pitching and fielding; the chase for 27 straight outs officially begins at noon EDT tomorrow.
I'm thinking of a famous, very touching monologue by Earl Weaver, the Hall of Fame manager of the Baltimore Orioles, talking about cutting players during spring training.
MLB 11 The Show's third-wheel analyst, Eric Karros, completely telegraphs this burn of Roy Halladay, who graces the cover of Major League Baseball 2K11.
Kotaku may have kicked off a fad last year, with our post on how to make your video game baseball presentation conform to real life broadcasting angles. MLB 2K11 directly cited the work as an inspiration behind its new broadcast presentation. MLB 11 The Show was assuredly thinking the same thing when it introduced…
Former Total Nonstop Action Wrestling star Stevie Richards (aka Michael Manna) apparently scored a perfect game in baseball game MLB 2K11. If verified, he might be the first person to do that, putting him up for line for a million dollar payday.
Brian Wilson, the eccentric, bearded reliever of the San Francisco Giants, hits the talk show circuit this evening to pimp MLB 2K11 and unveil a short film he's written. Queries as to whether "The Machine"/Pat Burrell would also appear were avoided outright. Whatever it is will be on "Lopez Tonight", midnight EST, 11…
Major League Baseball 2K10 got many big-picture details right, but still left me with a laundry list of demands for MLB 2K11, which I happily ticked off before getting a preview of the game this week.
Roy Halladay and Dallas Braden threw perfect games last season, the first time two occurred in the same year. Joined with Mark Buerhle's perfecto in 2009, that's three in 365 days. What's Tim Lincecum doing in this MLB 2K11 spot?
As you tour the 30 ballparks of Major League Baseball 2K11, you'll see games there from a center field camera view unique to each stadium. I can vouch for this feature's authenticity - because I did the work behind it.
This "first look" trailer for MLB 2K11 is short on specifics, but says the game will feature improved fielding and new player models - illustrated, naturally, by the Giants' sui generis closer, Brian Wilson.
Three up, three down, three times squared. Do that in a video game and you might win a million bucks. 2K Sports' mad Million Dollar Perfect Game challenge returns this year with MLB 2K11.
The chairman of Take-Two Interactive - the parent company of 2K Sports - called his company's exclusive pact with Major League Baseball a "losing proposition" and suggested they would walk away when the deal expires in 2012.
The first screenshot of MLB 2K11 has been released and it - quite deliberately I think - shows that the hideous uniform numerals from MLB 2K10 have been corrected and made consistent with real life.
Philadelphia Phillies perfect game-pitcher Roy Halladay will grace next year's edition of MLB 2K when 2K Sports' baseball sim comes back to console, portables and PC. The predicted Cy Young award winner is, unsurprisingly, honored to be this year's coverboy.
