''Computer Space'' is the first commercially sold UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame, created by [[{{Atari}} Nolan Bushnell]] and released in November 1971. It's a one or two player version of ''VideoGame/SpaceWar''. ''Space War'' had previously been software running on [[UsefulNotes/MainframesAndMinicomputers $20,000 general-purpose hardware]]; Bushnell's innovation was to use cheap logic chips to create a machine specifically for playing this one game.

Bushnell created ''Computer Space'' at home, and sold the game to Nutting and Associates, a maker of mechanical coin-op games. It was not a success, because drunks in a bar couldn't understand how to play a game designed for college students. Bushnell left Nutting and founded his own company, Syzygy Corp., later {{Atari}}.

* LadyNotAppearingInThisGame: Probably the URExample for an actual game. The [[http://flyers.arcade-museum.com/?page=flyer&db=videodb&id=1530&image=1 game's flyer]] features a woman in a low-cut white gown (which is translucent so her panties are visible) leaning on the cabinet.

Notably, it has a brief cameo in ''Film/SoylentGreen'' as one of the expensive toys left behind in William Simonson's lavishly equipped apartment after his murder.
