Sleeping Dogs conquers UK sales chart

Sleeping Dogs review Triad and true
Crime drama Sleeping Dogs awoke to meaty sales in the UK last week, sinking its teeth into first place. Chart-Track notes the game, developed by United Front Games and published by Square Enix, has become "the sixth best selling game on first week sales in 2012."

The other major debut last week was the 3DS's New Super Mario Bros 2, which flew in at second place. Although it may seem awkward for a major Mario to launch in second, New Super Mario Bros also started its life in second place back in 2006. The game is sure to have a long (raccoon) tail.

Meanwhile, London 2012: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games took bronze after a couple golden weeks.
