For anyone planning to make attempts at winning the $1 million perfect game contest in MLB 2K10 it is important to be aware of the rules. You will not qualify by simply throwing a perfect game. Instead you must meet all the requirements which include beginning the recording from before the TV is even turned on and avoiding pausing the game or making a mound visit. There is some subjectivity to this as well as any video recording deemed to be “low quality” will be thrown out. Continue on to read up on the rules.

  • Xbox 360 and PS3 Only
  • Residents of Arizona, Connecticut, Maryland, North Dakota, and Vermont are ineligible
  • Must be 18 years or older
  • The contest beings at the turn of Tuesday March 2nd Pacific Time and runs through May 1st.
  • If there is a winner they will not be announced until June.
  • Must be authorized account holder of the XBL or PSN account logged into while the perfect game is pitched.
  • After completing the perfect game the entry form must be completed here.

A video of the game in its entirety will need to be sent in for verification with the specifics precisely followed below or the entry will be disqualified.

  • Recording must begin at least 5 seconds prior to turning on television and Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.
  • Recording must show the full boot up sequence of the videogame console.
  • Recording must show the user logged onto PSN/Xbox Live prior to commencement of Perfect Game attempt.
  • Recording must be recorded with sufficient clarity and resolution such that all text displayed upon selecting “Perfect Game Mode” is clearly visible and legible in the recording, along with the button icon which appears during an ‘Accept or decline challenge’ prompt. Prior to attempting to complete and record a Perfect Game, eligible entrants should run a test recording to insure that the recording quality is sufficient. SUBMISSIONS ACCOMPANIED BY LOW QUALITY RECORDINGS WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
  • Recording must be completely uninterrupted for the entirety of the Perfect Game.
  • Upon the completion of the Perfect Game, a verification code will be displayed on the screen. The video recording must be of sufficient resolution such that the entire screen is visible and the verification code is completely legible.
  • The video recording submission must be transmitted to 2K on a DVD using one of the following file formats: AVI, MPG, MOV, MPG, MPG 2, MP4, WMV, FLV and must be capable of fitting in entirety on a single DVD. Entrants should make two copies, one for submission, and one for their personal records. Sponsor will only accept physical copies of the recording, and all submissions become property of Sponsor. Write your Verification Code, Name, and Gamertag/PSN ID in permanent marker on your submission disc.

In addition to the video recording requirements the following gameplay requirements are necessary to avoid being disqualified.

  • User must be online and logged onto Xbox Live/PSN during the Perfect Game attempt.
  • User must play the game in the Perfect Game Mode under the MLB Today menu option and must use the pitcher set to start for entrant’s team that day under MLB Today menu (entrants cannot substitute a pitcher not scheduled to pitch on that day according to that day’s MLB Today roster).
  • User may not pause or interrupt the game at any time during the entirety of the Perfect Game and may not engage in delaying tactics (for example, standing pitcher on the mound and not throwing a pitch or taking any game action for 60 consecutive seconds).
  • User must throw a perfect game without making any pitching substitutions and must not make any mound visits with their manager during the course of the Perfect Game. Submitted games which include a mound visit shall be immediately disqualified.
  • User must throw the Perfect Game using Total Control Pitching and Total Control Hitting control schemes. These control schemes will automatically be set to default when entering the MLB 2K10 Contest Mode. You may not pause the game and change them during the Perfect Game attempt.

    I dont even see perfect game mode as an option…. where is it located????????

  • mdbigman

    I just don’t understand the you cannot substitute a starting pitcher rule. You must use the pitcher set to start. And no mound visits? Why not? Mound visits are a major part of the game. It helps the picture refocus and settle down.

  • jasonthelamb

    same here, i had a season where I won every game on Legendary, hit 75 HR with Pujols, 150+ RBIs, etc.

    Lincecum was a 30 game winner with over 450K…

    why can't you win the prize for ps2 on mlb 2k10 and watch video on youtube.com/bostweek and subscribe and tell people

  • FUCK YOU

    its mlb 2k9 with a new cover and a virtually unwinnable contest. its pretty obvious why the contest rules werent shown before it was released, no one would have bought this piece of shit and attempted wasting their goddamn money / time when they could have been making real money somewhere else. half of the people will snap this piece of shit in half after restarting their console / recharging their camera for the 20th time. of course the makers were confident no one would win, they made it fucking impossible. fuck you 2k sports, if you own any shares, drop them before its too late.

  • alexmccormack

    I got all the way to the 9th inning and then they lay down a bunt..it fucked me up. it is hard to get the damn bunts.

  • deepen03

    wow whats up with the ineligible in those states? don't live in any of them but wow, thats unfair.

  • baseball dude

    Does anybody know if the Accept/Decline option is supposed to pop up everytime? I've only seen it pop up once and it seems a little fishy. BTW I was wondering if anybody knew of anyone actually throwing a perfect game, cause I made it to the 9th inning one out?

    Yeah, obviously they have a perfect game mode to control the settings, but still, there are a lot of rules. As far as whomever commented about the quality of this game (i.e. “We're not sure about the quality, but this is a cheap method to boost our sales…”) this is the best, most realistic baseball game I have ever played. Far better than the MLB2K series in every respect.

  • Mike

    oops…thought this was for the show. Yeah, MLB2k10 sucks ass. Gameplay is terrible. I would wager that they will allow someone to win, but I wouldn't get this game. The Show is far superior.

  • Mike

    And yes, I own both games. Have owned MLB2k since 2k5. The Show is just way better. MLB2k really does suck in comparison. Rent both, compare them, let me know what you think.

  • dwrocker1

    Can I get paid in Euros or how about silver…
    even if no one wins or if some one does the publicity of this i am sure made them more than a mil, also a mil for advertising isnt that much in Dollars anymore

  • Alfred

    i hope someone actually pitches a perfect game because its clear they dont want anyone to win…..no mound visit!!!, must be logged in xbox live, contest ends on may 1st!!! , they should have at least let the contest go until the end of the baseball season

  • brian0123

    i just threw a perfect game and didnt record it, is there anyway i can get it?

  • kyle

    this is a load of crap. first of all why do you have to be 18years old???? and why does it madder what console you use, and what do you have against arizona, maryland, north dakoda, and vermont. and why can't you pause the game?? what if someone has to take a mega crap. this realy sucks…….

  • hairyjunsun

    I live in Vermont and I was just wondering why I and a few other States were excluded in this contest? I think it's a BUNCH OF CRAP!!!!!!!!

  • austinmvollrath

  • ozzie25

    i just got a perfect game

  • crazyharry

    Your probably to late…

  • pissedvermonter

    I think this is an utter disgrace to all gamers out there, and furthermore I think that it is a joke that some states are not allowed to compete. Being someone who lives in Vermont I think this is utter bullshit, and what if I pitched their so called perfect game I get nothing but the shaft. Hey guys rethink your way of doing things and make it fair for everyone to have a chance.

  • crazyharry

    Why are you not including resdients from five states? WTF? Why are they being condescending like this? Doesn't make sense, especially since four of those five states are in or near MLB markets. So some hick in Alaska could throw a perfect game but not an Orioles fan who grew up worshipping Jim Palmer? WTF.

  • XxB3DROCK48xx
