Needless to say, Elon Musk’s quest to become America’s real-life Tony Stark has hit a few speedbumps recently. Concerning Tesla quality control reports, stock instability, the whole “calling one of the Thai cave rescuers a pedophile” debacle – it’s been a rough few months. But don’t worry, things are turning around! Tesla Q1 earnings and a Musk apology led to a 9 percent bump in the company’s stock, and, even more importantly, you’ll soon be able to play Atari games on your $70,000 electric car. Jeez, finally.

Musk recently announced the Atari partnership on Twitter, and hinted that Pole Position, Tempest, and Missile Command will be among the games included. Aw, no E.T.?
