About 11 million people use MSN's instant messaging service in China, making it the second most popular messaging system in the country behind QQ.
The9 is the domestic operator of the World of Warcraft, the world's most popular online game. It has attracted more than 3.8 million players in China since it was launched nationwide two years ago.
WoW is the major revenue source of The9, whose earnings dropped 40 percent in the second-quarter of this year.
