Play Games, Get Rich

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.
