Check Out Tesla’s New Atari Game Video

Here’s a closer look at the new growing medley of classic Atari video games available on your Tesla infotainment screen.

Are you an avid gamer? Do you have an appreciation for the nostalgia that classic video games bring? We’re well aware that Tesla CEO Elon Musk would answer yes to both of these questions. Now, as part of Tesla’s latest software update, comes “Teslatari.” Yes, folks, you can play Centipede, Missile Command, Lunar Lander, Asteroids, and others on your Tesla screen using controls on the steering wheel.

It’s important to make it clear that you should not attempt to play these games while driving. Though you may have the itch to pass the time playing Teslatari when you’re stuck in traffic, this is a very bad idea. The intent is that these games can be accessed when the car is in park. In fact, it has already been made clear that these games can only to be played while stationary.

If you’re a video game developer, Musk says you should apply to Tesla so that perhaps you can help the team to add more games like this in the future.

Aren’t these distractions during driving, even if autonomous mode is engaged?

They can only be played when the car is parked. 😉

Memo to Tesla service centers :

Get ready to replace lots of steering wheel buttons and parts.

I noticed that while playing with the steering controls that they are not as sturdy as game controllers. For some games like lunar lander, it’s not much of a problem. But, I tried Centipede and that game can really abuse the scroll wheels. I’ll atick with the virtual joystick. BTW, that game is the buggiest with the controls – sometimes you can’t move and other times it just refuses to work correctly.
