Atari VCS 2600 - 1977
Description: Not considered an actual computer per se, but the Atari VCS is the first successful microprocessor-based hardware gaming system, with interchangeable cartridges containing the game code.

The success of the early Pong games created a demand for more and better video games to be played at home.
After $100 million in design and development, Atari released their new Video Computer System (VCS) in October of 1977.
The VCS was also available from Sears, as the Sears Video Arcade - internally identical to the Atari version, with minor external cosmetic changes to differentiate it.

Overall sales were slow at first, with less than 500,000 units sold in the first year. Sales eventually skyrocketed to over 8 million units per year in 1982, five years after being introduced.
