さい

In the convo below:

A「だが勇者になれなかった! なぜだかわかるか!?」
B「実力不足だろ?」
A「笑止! 実力は充分だった! だが私が全盛期の時は肝心の魔王がいなかったのだ!」
B「さいですか」
---

Is that just a major typo or is there some meaning to さい / さいです I'm not aware of?

左様(さよう)ですか。= Is that so?
が訛(なま)ったものだとおもいます。
ほかに、「さよか」というのもあります。

Thanks! That makes a lot of sense considering the context.
