These were released recently, last week I think. I will probably order a set at some point.

There's a set of classic game stamps featuring things like Elite, Lemmings, Populus and Wipeout.

In addition there is a miniature sheet featuring four Tomb Raider stamps.

These kinds of things are called commemorative stamps, it's been going on for decades. A lot of it is aimed at the collector. People will still be aiming to get them used in period though.

Royal Mail was privatised a few years back, got nothing to do with the government, but yes it's obviously a way of making some money.

Well over here I've heard of places that sell stamps where you can have a pic put on the stamp, they must have a deal with the post office so the mail will be delivered since that is the reason to put a stamp on.  Made for special occasions I'd guess like weddings ect

Yes, I have seen various countries that offer personalised stamps. They were doing it here in the UK, but I just checked and that service has been withdrawn.

It's not really an area that interests me with regard to collecting, but anything that gets people interested I think is a good thing for the hobby.
