2K Sports announced that 546,000 perfect game attempts in Major League Baseball 2K12 have been logged. 520 verified perfect games have also been confirmed since the Perfect Game Challenge began on the Opening Day of the MLB season on April 4, 2012.

“It’s been an incredible turnout for this year’s competition, but it’s not surprising how rapidly the fans have challenged themselves,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “We expected a fierce competition and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the qualifying round reach one million attempts when it’s all over.”

The MLB 2K12 $1 Million Perfect Game Challenge will conclude on April 30, 2012, with the top eight competitors on the dynamic leaderboard receiving a trip to New York City in May to compete in a single elimination tournament at the MLB Fan Cave to determine the winner of the $1 million prize.
