The first Xbox Live Clash of the Continents Tournament has taken place during the X03 event in the South of France today, and has seen an American walk away as the best gamer.

Twenty-four year old Hal Rotholz (or Zamees as he'd be known by his Gamertag) beat fellow gamers from Canada and eight European countries, during a hard-fought battle of Ubi Soft's Rainbow Six 3.

By coincidence Rainbow Six 3 was also awarded with the X03 Game of the Show title, with Ninja Gaiden from Tecmo grabbing the the X03 Technical Achievement Award, and Lionhead Studios Fable snapping up the X03 Innovation Award.
