'Dead Space' is the new benchmark for video game remakes
In the split second before a necromorph slides its arm blades into Isaac Clarke's stomach, it looks like the massive monster is giving him a bloody, snarling, over-excited hug.

Those are both records for Tesla, as was the full-year deliveries of 1.31 million. Profits for the year totaled $12.6 billion.

"Despite the fact that 2022 was an incredibly challenging year due to forced shutdowns, very high interest rates, and many delivery challenges," Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, said during the call. "It's worth noting that all these records were in the face of massive difficulties. a credit to the team for achieving that."

The final quarter of 2022 was especially volatile for the electric automaker following the finalization of Musk's Twitter acquisition in late October.
