Some people are born gamers. And it’s about time that their gaming skills help them make some money. At least that dream came true for Wade McGilberry, a 23-year-old gaming enthusiast from Mobile, Ala. All it took him was one and a half hours to play a perfect game in Take-Two Interactive Software Inc.’s “Major League Baseball 2K10.” And what did that earn him, you ask? Well, the young man is now a million dollars richer thanks to the feat!
The game “MLB 2K10” simulates baseball as closely as possible for a home player. Even in real life baseball, only 18 pitchers have been able to pitch-perfect games in the history of Major League Baseball, beginning with Lee Richmond in 1880 and ending with Mark Buehrle in 2009.
