Tesla is getting closer to integrating Steam for in-car gaming: View details


Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said that the electric vehicle company is getting closer to integrating Valve’s Steam to take its in-car gaming platform to a new level. According to auto-tech website Electrek, Tesla is investing heavily in integrating video games into its in-car entertainment systems.

But it still surprised many when Tesla said earlier this year that it planned to integrate Valve’s Steam, an online video game store and distribution platform, into its vehicles. This will result in a huge increase in games playable inside Tesla vehicles.

This week, Musk said Tesla is getting closer to achieving Steam integration and the automaker is targeting a demonstration next month. “We are making progress with Steam integration. Demo probably next month,” Musk wrote on Twitter. The demonstration will include some computing-demanding video games to show off gaming capability inside Tesla vehicles.

Elon Musk recently said that his electric vehicle company Tesla will pull down the prices of its cars if inflation calms down. On microblogging site Twitter, Tek Honcho mentioned car prices when asked by a user whether the company plans to reduce the cost of cars after the pandemic or supply chain matters.

“If inflation calms down, we can lower car prices,” the tech billionaire wrote on Twitter.

Last month, Musk-owned Tesla once again increased the prices of its electric cars across its entire lineup, raising some models by up to $6,000. After a year of increasing prices almost every month in 2021, Tesla slowed its rapid increase in prices in its electric vehicles by early 2022.

However, it later updated its online configurator overnight to increase the prices across its entire lineup. According to a recent report, the Model 3 is the one that got the smallest price hike of all of Tesla’s lineup. The report states that only the Model 3 Long Range is affected as it went from $54,490 to $57,990, a $2,500 price increase.
