Thank you for having me. I appreciate it.

Eric J. Sheridan – UBS Securities LLC

And at least early indicators are that the consumers are very excited, obviously Sony sold over a million PlayStation 4s in the first 24 hours, which is a great sign for those who watched Sony in the last console transition. This is a much smoother transition for them and looks like Microsoft will be similar.

We had a great weekend of sales relative to the consoles that looks like the average consumer tie
