In the weeks leading up to the launch of south Park: The Stick of Truth, much was made of the uncensored PC version versus the censored console version of the game. Could this have led to increased demand for the PC version? Did this sway your purchase decision? Let us know in the comments.

Original article: A large game retailer has confirmed to MyGaming that launch stock allocations of South Park: The Stick of Truth on PC have been cut in SA.

This has led to a shortfall in fulfilling PC pre-orders. The retailer’s spokesperson said it is not clear when the next batch of PC copies will be available, but it could be another two to three weeks from the time of writing.

Xbox 360 and PS3 allocations have not been affected.

The game is written and voiced by series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and will require players to arm themselves in order to defeat the crabpeople, underpants gnomes, goddamn hippies, and other forces of evil.
