Windows 10 is promising to fix a lot of issues that users had with Windows 8, as well bring back the functionality that the world was accustomed to pre-Windows 8. In addition to the functionality aspect of Windows 10, Microsoft is bringing back the classic games of Solitaire, Minesweeper, and Hearts. However, one of the classic mobile games will also be making its way to your Windows 10 machines. Candy Crush Saga will also be pre-installed on any computer updated to Windows 10.

If you’ve been paying attention to gaming (or pop culture in general) chances are pretty high that you’ve heard of King’s smash mobile hit Candy Crush Saga. With its compelling blend of tricky puzzles coated in gorgeous eye candy, Candy Crush Saga is a global phenomenon for good reason. Windows Phone users have been enjoying Candy Crush Saga since its launch on the platform in December, and later this year, all Windows 10 owners will be able to experience the hit game that’s swept the mobile world like wildfire. 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. It will even include cross-play options for your iOS and Android devices.

In addition to Candy Crush wasting your time on your various devices, you will now have to fight the urge to try and beat that one level that keeps kicking your butt on your computers. I was all on board for bringing back Solitaire, Minesweeper, and Hearts, but this is a little much. /s

The only hesitation that I have with King and Microsoft pre-installing Candy Crush Sage on your Windows 10 computers, is the same issue that I have with all pre-installed third party software. Will this slow things down whatsoever? How will it affect those users who are running computers that are older, yet compatible with Windows 10?

Let us know your thoughts about King and Microsoft bringing Candy Crush to pre-installed onto your Windows 10 computer of choice, instead of giving you an option to just play it through Facebook or your various mobile devices.
