joins us now. now, yen, you have described this as a monster deal. what does microsoft see an activision was it here? we're paying almost $70000000000.00. just a massive deal. i mean, take those roughly $70000000000.00. that is almost 10 times the revenue activity blizzard made to for the entire year of for 2020. but clearly the gaming industry is growing and what companies to try to achieve in general is to get more content and just held subscriptions to the users. for example, in the case of microsoft with the x box, you need to monthly game paths. and if you want to play online games and now the content off the an activision, that would be a gift for microsoft even more growth in that area. so yeah,
