UK chart: Payday 2 steals first place

Heist and mighty.

New release Payday 2 has strong-armed itself to the top of the UK all-format charts and dethroned Minecraft's Xbox 360 Edition for the first time in three weeks.

Why so serious?

Overkill's robbery shooter earned first place and the series' first entrance into the retail charts - its predecessor Payday: The Heist was download-only.

Minecraft was shovelled down to second place this week, ahead of a resurgent Black Ops 2 in third.

FIFA 13 fell to fourth, meanwhile, while 3DS exclusive Animal Crossing: New Leaf held firm in fifth.

The Last of Us, Smurfs 2, Lego Batman 2, Tomb Raider and Grand Theft Auto 4 filled out the rest of the top 10.
