The Perfect Game Challenge, an annual competition held alongside the release of each year’s version of the MLB 2K series, will be getting a new format for MLB 2K13.

The contest, formerly called the Million Dollar Challenge, will no longer have a single $1 million winner. Instead, 30 winners will win $25,000 each and one grand prize winner will take home $250,000.

There will be one winner for each of the 30 MLB franchises. The player with the highest scored perfect game for each team will claim a $25,000 prize. The top four scorers will be flown to New York during MLB All-Star Weekend in July to take part in a tournament. The top player will win $250,000.

[adsense250itp]A perfect game is when a single pitcher retires all opposing hitters without letting one reach base in any way. A minimum of 27 batters must be faced but a perfect game can include extra innings.

Scores for perfect games in MLB 2K are calculated based on a number of factors, including strength of the opposition, strength of the pitcher, number of pitches thrown and how many batters were struck out.

This will be fourth year for the competition, which has been considered a marketing success. However, the contest was marred last year by a well-publicized glitch in the game and possible cheating by one of the finalists. Official rules for this year’s competition have yet to be revealed. Players can only hope it will be handled better by 2K Sports this time around.

The Perfect Game Challenge begins on April 1, the same day the baseball season opens.

MLB 2K13 is set to release March 5 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will be the only officially licensed MLB game for Xbox 360 players.
