Hamster Wins Xbox Tournament
Microsoft isn’t the only big winner in the world of Xbox this past week. The company announced record revenue on Thursday, in large part fueled by robust sales of its Xbox One and Xbox 360 entertainment consoles.
But the real big winner in Xbox world this week may be Grizz the hamster (gamertag: Hambone37). Grizz won a huge Halo: Spartan Assault tournament, sponsored by Mountain Dew.
And that’s just the latest achievement in a month full of them.
“He’s on fire recently,” said Brigit Thomas (gamertag: Sunshine Brigade). “Hambone has been untouchable. It’s really been unprecedented.”
All told, Grizz has won seven tournaments since the start of the year, and taken home winnings totally $47,500 (though much of that is the 2014 Toyota Tundra he won at a tournament in Las Vegas during CES).
