The Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL might come with Candy Crush Saga pre-installed

Unlike the usual hardware-based rumors and leaks, this time around we're here to report on a rather interesting choice that Microsoft has allegedly made with regard to the apps that come pre-installed on the two phones.
According to a new rumor, the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL will both come with Candy Crush Saga pre-installed. The source couldn't say if the game will be pre-installed on all of the various market-specific variants of the two phones, but the international versions of the handsets are said to come with the game out of the box. Fortunately for those who aren't into Candy Crush, users will allegedly be able to uninstall the game from their handset.
Back in May, Microsoft announced that King's Candy Crush Saga will be ported to Windows 10 Mobile, and even bundled the game with the preview version of the OS for a limited time. Microsoft's decision to pre-install the game, one of the most popular titles in mobile gaming history, can be interpreted a sign of the work that has been done to minimize the app gap between Windows Mobile and the two leading mobile platforms, Android and iOS.
Lol. This is funny coming from the company that promotes productivity. I can already see business people wasting time playing this game during office hours. No, offense to those who already do.

Am I the only one that: 1) Never ever played Candy Crush? 2) Sees a better future for games on the win platform?

No, you are not alone. I never played candy crush and hate it badly. Also hate those ppl who play it. It looks like a kids game. I have a half day salary deduction policy in my office if found anyone playing game during working hous. Only browsing, facebook or whatapps is allowed in free time.

Only browsing, Facebook and Whatsapp allowed in FREE time. Whatever I do in my free time, is my business. What I do during working hours, that's another thing and using that time for Facebook and Whatsapp should be punishable as well (if used excessively). So if I want to play f**king candy crush on my break, that's my choice and some lame policy can't do a thing about it. Ps if you hate people that play a stupid mobile game, you need to get a life.

Then your job blows. No job will tell me what to do on my free time unless I am breaking internal policy etc in regards to privacy and other sensitive COMPANY information. I highly doubt candy crush is company information.

Candy Crush and any of those games are as much fun as dragging your balls across sandpaper dosed in vinegar..

Yes, let's install the old version of the game while the soda one, which is actually new, is still unavailable. Which you will find out after trying to find it in the store. Seriously, why do this???
