Microsoft crowns Halo 2 king

King Tuur of the Netherlands beats 50,000 others for title of Halo 2 world champion.

Once the SMG rounds were emptied, plasma grenades had exploded, and corpses were removed from the battlefield, only one competitor was left standing in the first-ever Xbox Live Global Halo 2 Tournament. King Tuur of the Netherlands took home the grand prize, besting 50,000 others in a double-elimination competition spanning 24 regions around the world.

The 17-year-old from Geldrop defeated runner-up Aimitux of Japan in the finals to take home a 50-inch Samsung DLP HDTV, a Samsung DVD player/recorder, cash totaling $1,500, and a half-size statue of Halo 2 hero Master Chief, among other prizes. The final match was played over Xbox Live on the map Warlock.

King Tuur, which is a shortened version of King Arthur, left the tired life of being a paperboy after realizing he could have more fun (and hopefully money) gaming.
