Smith also mentioned that if Sony is willing, Microsoft is also willing to offer the same conditions. "Any time Sony wants to sit down and talk, we will also be happy to finalize a 10-year deal for PlayStation."

Microsoft spent $69 billion (about NT$1.9 trillion) to buy Activision Blizzard earlier this year, but the acquisition process is currently under scrutiny from regulators in the United States, the European Union and other countries, as well as strong opposition from rival Sony. Sony is worried that Activision Blizzard's change of hands will prevent PlayStation players from playing the decisive moment.

Our acquisition will bring Call of Duty to more gamers and more platforms than ever before. That's good for competition and good for consumers. Thank you @Nintendo. Any day @Sony wants to sit down and talk, we'll be happy to hammer out a 10-year deal for PlayStation as well. https://t.co/m1IQxdeo6n
