Things have been shaky for Elon Musk’s electronic vehicle company Tesla lately after delayed production schedules and receiving flak for auto driving issues. Now, Musk has come up with a new means to dissuade voices — Video Games. Because who doesn’t like video games?
On Wednesday, Elon Musk invited applications for video game developers in Tesla who would help him make super fun games that “integrate the center touchscreen, phone & car.”
In the following tweets, he said that applicants need to send examples of prior work and the company is looking forward to a developer who can develop games with “playability & creativity.”
If you’re into video game development, consider applying to Tesla. We want to make super fun games that integrate the center touch screen, phone & car irl.

Earlier, Musk announced that Tesla’s V9.0 software would have classic Atari games.
Needless to say, the level of excitement in Tweeple after the announcement was skyrocketing. Many people asked Musk about the games that he is planning to introduce in Tesla.
Pokemon Go for Tesla??

How about Tesla Go: Driving around the city picking up virtual hookers with cash and the appeal of your cool low carbon footprint fully electric luxurycar?

The entire concept of playing video games on the touchscreen of your car with the steering wheel and gear as accessories seems like a scene from a sci-fi movie, but we have Elon Musk.
However, many attempts have been made previously on the similar lines. A Nissan Qashqai SUV was used for playing Pro Evolution Soccer on PS4, and the results were impressive. Watch the video below.
