Elon Musk is one of the biggest names in the tech industry, but he doesn’t have many plans to delve into the gaming side of things. Elon Musk has made a name for himself over the years thanks to companies like Tesla, an electric car company that aims to be fast, affordable and packed with all sorts of features. Musk is also investing heavily in space exploration with the goal of going to Mars and more. Earlier this year, Elon Musk even struck a deal to buy Twitter, but ultimately backed out of the deal which has since sparked a rather intense lawsuit from the social media company.
With Elon Musk dipping his toes into various sectors of the tech industry, he won’t be investing a ton in gaming. In a recent interview with the Full Send Podcast, Elon Musk was asked if he would be interested in making of his own video game console and he very quickly replied “No, you don’t need that”. The billionaire noted that he was more of a PC guy and that most consoles these days are closer to PCs. Musk also noted that he doesn’t think there’s any added value in creating another console. That said, Musk is a big gamer and likes to infuse that into places that make sense to him. For example, recent iterations of the Tesla Model S have the ability to play video games and Musk said there will be some sort of integration with Steam in the future.
Still, don’t expect a Tesla console or anything like that. It’s hard to imagine what new twist Musk could put on consoles with great hardware like the Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck trying to push the boundaries of gaming. We’re probably still at least 6-8 years away from a next-gen of consoles, so only time will tell where the technology will be by then and what gaming will have to offer at that time.
