Ireland celebrates classic video games with new stamps

Paying tribute to classic video-game icons, Ireland's state-run postal service today released four stamps featuring Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Pac-Man and Space Invaders.

Taito Corp.'s Space Invaders and Namco's Pac-Man -- debuting in 1978 and 1980, respectively, making  them the oldest of the quartet -- are represented by screenshots, while Nintendo's Mario and Sega's Sonic themselves are showcased on their stamps.

The stamps are issued by An Post and designed Dublin's Zinc Design Consultants.
