Tesla’s not-so-secret stash of video games concealed inside its cars and truck’s infotainment system got two new games on Thursday– but the timing of the software application update was really weird for anyone closely following the business.

Starting today, Model X, S, and 3 owners can upgrade their automobile software application to include the games 2048 and Super Breakout in the TeslAtari game console.

Now the full video game list consists of:

  • 2048

  • Super Breakout

  • Missile Command

  • Asteroids

  • Lunar Lander

  • Centipede

While the games look enjoyable and all, it’s a clear interruption from some less amusing Tesla news coming later on this afternoon. Elon Musk’s oral argument with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in a Manhattan federal courthouse will be held Thursday at 2 p.m. ET.

The SEC is looking for to hold Musk in contempt of court for breaking a settlement arrangement when he tweeted about projected Tesla vehicle sales back in February. The settlement originates from last year after he tweeted about taking Tesla private. Tesla is a publicly traded business and its CEO’s tweets can impact markets. Musk was supposed to cool it with the potentially influential tweeting and have his online remarks pre-approved

Now it’s all pertaining to a court hearing to see if Musk will be fined or even worse: removed as CEO of his electric automobile business.

Amusing timing, indeed.
