Man wins $1m playing baseball video game 

275x250.jpgA US man has scooped a prize of $1,000,000 -- by throwing a perfect game on a baseball computer game.

Wade McGilberry was rewarded with the cash after taking part in a competition organised by the makers of MLB 2K10, to find the top virtual pitcher.

Contestants had to record a video of themselves playing and then submit it to game bosses to prove they were better than anyone else.

Amazingly it was on the first day of the contest Wade threw a verified perfect game on the console -- a feat many people though was impossible.

His reward, the $1,000,000… and never having to apologise to his wife for playing video games rather than doing the washing up.
"It was actually my wife who convinced me to go for it," said Wade, 24 from Alabama.

"I never thought I’d actually win a million dollars playing a video game, it’s all still sinking in for me.

"The game itself was fantastic – I’m glad I bought it either way ¬– but I have to say, this is a nice return on my investment."
