Oh boy! Elon is back at is fanatic ideas again. After dipping his toes into the gaming world, Elon has been pretty vocal about his ideas regarding the trends in gaming.
Elon Musk decided to open up what he had been up to for the past few months after users had been asking him to add certain games to Tesla’s range of cars. The discussion started when a random user on Twitter asked Elon to add Mario Kart to Tesla that would allow drivers to play Mario Kart while they charge their cars.
How about a version of Mario Kart where you can play against random people who are also charging their car at the moment?
To which Elon replied…
We tried. Nintendo won’t license it to us.
Its great to see that Elon definitely had the idea and the courage to speak to some of the reps over at Nintendo, but at the same time, it’s just as much of a bummer to see Nintendo reject their offer given that the Tesla would most likely run an older copy of the game. The idea and execution were definitely on point, but it seems like Nintendo has just begun seeing the larger picture outside of their “all-too-classy” environment and it definitely didn’t seem like this was the right time to ask Nintendo regarding the situation.
With the launch of the Nintendo Switch last year, Nintendo had been very open regarding opening its arms for 3rd-party developers. Developers such as EA, Bethesda, Ubisoft and more have begun porting their incredible games for the Nintendo Switch and has been one of the major reasons why the Nintendo Switch has become a huge success over the past two years. It’s incredible to see how far Nintendo has come with the Nintendo Switch and it seems like Nintendo’s efforts are definitely paying off as important releases continue to boom the popularity of the Nintendo Switch worldwide.
