Mario stays on top

The latest PC Data sales charts demonstrate Mario's undying appeal.

by

PC Data has released its list of the top-selling video games for the week ending February 17. Nintendo, which had a good week, takes the top four slots. Paper Mario, one of the few RPGs available for the Nintendo 64, continues to sell well, while Pokémon Gold and Silver make a return to the top five. PlayStation 2 software is finally beginning to consistently make the top 10, with four titles on the list this week. Dreamcast software sales have again cooled off: Phantasy Star Online is the only DC title to make the top 10 this week.

it's funny how thy mention the Sega Dreamcasts sales "cooling off" when the console was officially discontinued by Sega just a few days arter this article was posted. They didn't post sales figures a decade ago either, unfortunately.
