StarCraft II’s gone to the top of the UK charts, pushing Toy Story 3 down into second.

The release of the sequel, the first PC title to reach the top spot this year, has sold more copies then its predecessor ever did in its lifetime, with StarCraft 1 only going as far as 24 in the original All-Formats chart back in 1998.

Red Dead Redemption, Dance on Broadway and Lego: Harry Potter seal the top five.
