Post Elon Musk’s announcement in July that Tesla will soon integrate a number of games to play on the go, Tesla has finally launched Steam integration for its cars. This opens avenues for drivers to play loads on games while the car isn’t being driven around.

The latest Steam integration will be available for the Tesla Model S and Model X cars.  Over the last few months, in fact, years, Tesla has been working on upgrading its video game integration models as part of the car entertainment units.

Holiday cheer on cards

However, news that integration would be happening for Valve’s Steam seems to be more of a surprise. The online game store cum distribution platform being part of Tesla’s in-built system is big news. Steam comes with a huge library comprising video games. Imagine all of this getting integrated in Tesla EVs. The customer craze would surpass un-imaginable limits.

Earlier in July, CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk had promised releasing Steam integration in August. However, that never happened and it seemed that plans for such integration had gone on hold.

With the latest Tesla launch of Steam Beta for its S and X models, its “holiday update” is finally something that gives holiday cheer indeed. These models have been in the market for just the last couple of years and the integration might have been seemingly easy.

Looking into the systems

Moreover, since these are flagships from Tesla, the overall entertainment design is more power-packed. The processing power alone goes up over to 10 teraflops. Naturally, in-car games with latest consoles become a real possibility. Tesla also brings on board wireless controller ability that will allow gaming from any part of the seats.  The system will be integrated while being in direct connection to a couple of touch screens inside the Tesla systems.

Musk announced that Tesla’s computer system comes with additional storage that allows ease in handling a number of heavy-weight games on the Steam system.

Looking ahead

Of late news has been doing rounds on how Tesla has its in-house engineering team for software to work just on games in Seattle and also recently, in Austin. Tesla thoroughly believes in the fact that with self-driving, the best entertainment is not just a choice but the need of the hour. No wonder, the integration is only one step to ensuring this belief.
