Elon Musk’s SpaceX Becomes Richer Than Elon Musk’s Tesla

Elon Musk’s SpaceX Becomes Richer Than Elon Musk’s Tesla

After March's announcement that the hard-as-nails, retro-stylized platformer Cuphead was coming to the Nintendo Switch, we wondered what platform might be the next to see a port.

Analysts have described Tesla as "structurally unprofitable" as Elon Musk's electric auto company battles with a slowing in demand and increased competition.

Cuphead is not Tesla's first in-car game. It's a cool game. "It's insanely hard. It's sadistically hard", Musk said. It's a twisted plot.

We did not, however, think of the Tesla auto line as the next Cuphead port platform. "It's dark. It looks like some cute little Disney thing, [but] this plot is dark". In all cases, video games can only be played in Tesla cars when they're parked. As Musk notes on the podcast, "You have to decide what game you want to play, and then it will download. if you want to play other games you have to delete that one and download another one". Musk also mentioned that a "dune buggy" driving game is being tested.

As far as Tesla is concerned, it's possibly the most popular electric auto company on the planet with its top-selling Model S. But reports have suggested that the company isn't making any profits by selling off its vehicles. Because of that, a wired USB controller is required: It can not be played with the built-in touchscreen controls. And if you want to play something different, Cuphead (or whatever you've got installed) will have to go.

Even at less than $50,000, the Tesla pickup would still cost more than the average truck.

Tesla launched on Friday pre-orders for its China-made Model 3, pricing it well below the imported Model 3 and saying deliveries from the Shanghai factory will begin in six to ten months.
