PC Data has released its list of the top-selling video games for the week ending February 24. The PlayStation 2 is finally beginning to make a consistently strong appearance each week, and it currently has four titles in the top ten, including the number one spot, which was captured by Star Wars Starfighter. Pokémon Gold and Silver just keep on selling, and they came in at numbers three and four for the second consecutive week. Paper Mario managed to hold on to the second position after being the top-selling game last week. The Dreamcast's budget titles also surged onto the charts, while it appears as if Phantasy Star Online's sales have begun to taper off.
