Microsoft was so damn close to having an amazing launch for Windows 10. Free upgrades to Windows 10 for existing Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 owners? Awesome! They were doing so many things right that you just had a feeling there was going to be a catch somewhere. This is that catch.

According to the latest posting on Xbox.com, Microsoft will automatically install Candy Crush Saga onto the machines of customers that upgrade to or download Windows 10 for unspecified periods of time following the launch of the game.

You read that correctly. Hell, I'll even quote it from the news update and provide a screenshot for proof.
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.


You know, most of us in the States already have to put up with this kind of unwanted, bloatware, "automatically installing after the fact" garbage from our phone carriers. How's about we don't have to deal with it on our desktop operating systems too?
