Nintendo back on top

Yet another Nintendo game is sitting at the top of the PC Data sales charts.

PC Data has released its list of the top-selling video games for the week ending February 10. The Nintendo 64 may not have many games on its release schedule, but the games that are sent to retail tend to do quite well. Paper Mario, one of the few RPGs available for the Nintendo 64, has taken the top slot this week. EA's boxing simulation for the PlayStation 2, Knockout Kings 2001, comes in at a respectable second, while the massively mulitplayer online Dreamcast RPG, Phantasy Star Online, holds strong at number three. Pokémon Gold and Silver are still hanging around the charts and the PlayStation 2 is finally starting to come on taking four of the top 10 slots.

@LordAndrew Yea, Nintendo 64 games were ridiculously expensive because of the cartridge format. Some games were over $70.00 a decade ago!
