Halo 2 Champ Crowned

One master gamer has battled his way to the top of a double elimination ladder, and ultimately crowned Xbox Live "Halo 2" World Champion. King Tuur of the Netherlands triumphed over 50,000 "Halo 2" players worldwide in Xbox Live’s first ever Global "Halo 2" Tournament. The final match came down to players from Japan and the Netherlands competing for the overall Grand Champion title. The six global finalists (in alphabetical order) were: aimitux of Japan, ii Cabel ii of Australia, King Tuur of the Netherlands, L Terry15 L of the United States, ll Theos ll of France, and Pr0gamer of Germany. The final match started off with both "Halo" masters searching for the other in heated gameplay, but King Tuur proved too much for Japan’s aimitux. Once in the lead, King Tuur never relented and in the end he walked away with the coveted title. The first tournament of its kind on a console, this contest included players from each of Xbox Live’s 24 regions worldwide, with the competition played entirely online via Xbox Live. For winning the regional championship in the Netherlands, King Tuur received the following prizes: A half-size Master Chief Statue Personalized Xbox Live Halo 2 Championship sweatshirt and Regional Champion Plaque A Samsung Camcorder For winning the Xbox Live "Halo 2" World Championship, King Tuur received the following prizes: A 50’ Samsung Flat Screen DLP HDTV A Samsung DVD Player/Recorder A Personalized Xbox Live Halo 2 Global Champion Trophy featuring a gold Halo 2 game disc The U.S. equivalent of $1,500 in cash "Halo 2" is one of the highest rated and top selling video games of all time, with more than 6.7 million copies sold worldwide since November 2004. As Xbox Live continues to redefine online gaming, "Halo 2" features superior online multiplayer capabilities, evidenced by the fact that Xbox Live gamers have logged a record-breaking 240 million hours playing "Halo 2" since its launch. To date, more than two million unique users have played "Halo 2" online on Xbox Live.
