You already get the Windows game “Tinker” as a reward for joining Games for Windows, so it would make a lot of sense to start using the other Windows Games for marketing purposes.

Hopefully, they will also add this game to Windows 7, because a leaderboard for Tinker would be really, really awesome.

Wait, a leaderboard? Yep, the unspecified source also says that there will be achievements, a chat and a leaderboard!
