Burning down the city

There's an unsurprising result in this week’s UK sales charts, as animated role-playing tie-in South Park: The Stick of Truth has waltzed straight to the summit of the best-sellers list. The hilarious outing farted in the face of Square Enix’s mediocre Thief reboot, which slipped down into second. Elsewhere, The LEGO Movie Videogame and FIFA 14 rounded out the top five.

There was only one other new arrival this week, with Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures popping pills all the way into 21st position. Meanwhile, Batman: Arkham Origins enjoyed a bump on the back of Batman: Arkham Knight’s announcement, while Aliens: Colonial Marines continued to prove that anything will sell with a £4.99 price sticker.
