Not too many people get rich playing games. Well, except for real gamblers with poker (shout-out to David Williams). Maybe some with M:tG. And of course I guess game developers turn a living out of playing games. Some of them get rich over it, or at least seem to. Oh, nevermind anyone can do it:
New York, NY – May 5, 2010 – 2K Sports announced today that 24-year-old Wade McGilberry of Semmes, Alabama has won an unprecedented cash prize in the amount of $1,000,000 by being the first person to throw a verified perfect game in Major League Baseball® 2K10, the latest iteration of the popular Major League Baseball® 2K series.
Personally, I prefer The Show franchise. But I think this was great marketing for 2K. Congratulations, Wade.
