Chalk this one up to the ‘not sure if good thing or bad thing’ department. Microsoft has announced, through the Xbox Wire website, that pre-installed game stalwarts Minesweeper, Solitaire and Hearts will be getting some company when Windows 10 eventually launches.

Popular (some might say too popular) mobile title Candy Crush Saga will be available on Windows 10 for users to distract themselves from whatever the task at hand might be. In addition, other titles from maker King will be available on the platform at a later stage. So much for our productivity levels.

Microsoft said “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.”
