In what is no doubt a sign that humanity as we know it is coming to a swift, unproductive end, Microsoft has announced that King's notoriously moreish Candy Crush Saga will come pre-installed with Windows 10. That's right, pre-installed. In what appears to be an entirely non-ironic post over at Xbox Wire, Microsoft says that "as an added bonus, Candy Crush Saga will automatically be installed for customers that upgrade to or download Windows 10 for periods of time following the game launch."
There's no word on whether you'll be able to opt out of the automatic install, although it's likely King will want to get as many people as possible hooked on Candy Crush given its recent financial struggles.
Solitaire, Minesweeper and 3D Space Pinball aren't bugging you to pay money to keep playing. Windows always included some cool games--I still remember that Gorilla game on DOS.
Candy Crush, however, is one of the most notorious shitty mobile p2w games and now it will be everywhere... Makes you wonder how much they had to pay Microsoft to have them include it. It's not the same, at all.
PS. I found the pinball game to be amazing, btw. I wish it was still included on Windows 7. :<
