Andreas, it was nice talking to you as well. We appreciate your interest in Silicon Knights and we are glad you liked Eternal Darkness. We cannot comment on Eternal Darkness and on any future plans related to it at this time.On the phone some days ago, Rob said that he would have to check with the legal team.

Thanks for your interest.
