Tesla began integrating some video games into their cars last year, and now it is growing with new video games and engines, says Elon Musk.
Last year, the automaker introduced the "Teslatari & # 39;" an emulator of Atari games from the 70s and 80s running on Tesla vehicle computers.
They started with a few games, such as Asteriods and Pole positions, but Musk said it is just the beginning of the automaker's venture into bets in their vehicles.
They want to add more Atari games to the emulator, but Musk has also made it clear that they are planning to add other games from other companies as well.
This weekend, the CEO said they are working on porting Unity and Unreal video game engines in Tesla vehicles.
Musk added that there are many ways to control the video game from inside the vehicles:
We def need racing games with actual car steering wheel and pedals!

He said they want to be able to offer several different games like Quake, Portal, Roblox and Minecraft.
Musk said they considered adding Mario Kart, but Nintendo was not on board:

The CEO has also previously said that Tesla is working on car karaoke mode with the version 10 software update, which does not have a clear release date yet since the automaker has just started rolling out version 9.
Of course, These games are meant to be used while the car is parked. It can be helpful for owners while they are waiting to charge.
Tesla can also potentially look at ways to entertain drivers and passengers in a potentially self-propelled function.
A mobile gaming station is a way to do it?
