New Easter Eggs Games Coming to Tesla

Elon Musk showed up to E3 and showed off two new games he is bringing to the Tesla fleet very soon. E3 is an annual video gaming conference held out in California. Elon said he has always been interested in video games and in-fact designed and built one of his own when he was 10 or 11 years old. He said many programmers and engineers get their start in video games early on. It helps develop problem solving habits.

Tesla already has a few games in the cars right now. Asteroids, 2048, Missile Command to name a few. They are adding and taking away games all the time (last year Elon tweeted a reminder that more games are coming to Tesla). There isn’t much space on the computer to have a lot as it wasn’t designed for gaming. For safety the cars have to be in park to play the games. But maybe in the future when Full Self Driving is out we should be able to play the games when the car is driving us. That is weird to say.

The two games Elon showed off today at E3 where CupHead and Beach Buggy Racing 2. Of course the car needs a racing game as you have a steering wheel in front of you. That is what you use to control the game. Or if you like you can hook up a Xbox or PS3 controller to the usb ports and have a normal gaming experience. The game CupHead is an older looking game made to mimic the Mickey Mouse cartoons from long ago, but fighting crime.

How To Access Easter Eggs Games on Tesla

The way you access the games now is you tap the Tesla logo on the top of the screen and a car drops down. After a few seconds a menu appear showing all the Easter Eggs. There are more that just games in this menu. The fart app Elon says is his “finest work yet.” You also have a sketch pad and more. In the future you will be able to add and delete game through wifi to pass the time at Superchargers. This possibly opens up a large app store for Tesla.

Netflix and Youtube Soon on Tesla

If video games aren’t your cup of tea then soon you will be able to watch Netflix and stream YouTube videos right on the screen. The car will need to be in park and on wifi but again this is great for superchargers or waiting for the kids to get out of school.

There are many great things that Tesla is doing for the world and humanity. Why not have a little fun along the way. Elon said at Tesla they just try and make the cars as fun as possible.

I would like to see the game of good Customer Service from Tesla.
Tesla is putting a lot of effort into the mobile service right now. They have found that for most service issues the cars don’t need to be on a lift. So a mobile service guy can get to you much quicker if you are at work or home
Actually, I don't want to see any Easter Eggs games from Tesla. Tesla should properly utilize the software labor force to better the DRIVING experience.
I would like Tesla to focus on one click summon back the car into the garage. The straight version. Would be my first vote, followed by, Summon forward car into the garage, the straight version. To summon the car from the cul-de-sac and back into my garage, straight, is the I've died and gone to heaven, the ultimate game. Anything more and I've gone to Hell and made a deal with the devil version.
I don't want any Easter Eggs games from Tesla. Please, focus on cars.
Can the Tesla game match the traffic around you, now that would be fun?
I agree with the people who express the sentiment that there are many things that are more important than Easter eggs. Fix the audio system problems that have been around for years, for one thing. Integrate Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Improve telephone Bluetooth functionality. Bring us the features that the competition has and that Tesla doesn't have.
