south parkSouth Park: The Stick of Truth has debuted at the top of the UK All Formats Chart, meaning Thief has to settle for second this week.

Stick of Truth saw the majority of its sales on the Xbox 360 with 53%. The PlayStation 3 version managed 41% whilst the PC version, the only way to play the game in Europe in its uncensored glory, managed 6% of the sales, according to Chart Track.

FIFA 14 dropped down to fifth, whilst Call of Duty: Ghosts is out of the top five for the first time since its release, coming in at sixth this week.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is able to gain a place in the charts as it rises to seventh, with Battlefield 4 ending up in eighth.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes slipped two places down to ninth, whilst Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag rounds off the top 10 this week.

Elsewhere in the charts the only other new release for the week, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures managed to clock in at 21st.
