UK chart: South Park: The Stick of Truth debuts top

Makes censor to us.

Animated RPG South Park: The Stick of Truth has debuted at the top of the UK all-format charts in its first week of release.

53 per cent of physical copies were sold on Xbox 360, 41 per cent on PlayStation 3 and 6 per cent on PC, the only format not hit by the game's European censorship.

South Park is Ubisoft's first number one of 2014 and the first role-player to debut in first place since Ni No Kuni in February 2013.

The only other new entry was Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures - that arrived in 21st place.

Thief, last week's number one, fell to second place. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was third, The Lego Movie Video Game was fourth and FIFA 14 fifth.

Call of Duty: Ghosts, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, Battlefield 4, Lego Marvel Superheroes and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.
