Sleeping Dogs tops UK sales charts

Sleeping Dogs has held onto the top slot of the UK's videogames sales chart for a second consecutive week

 

Hong Kong kung-fu action films are a bigger draw than transforming robots and the Grim Reaper himself, it seems. Sleeping Dogs, Square Enix's mixture of Far Eastern action cinema and GTA open-world mechanics remains the UK's top selling game, in spite of the arrival of new releases Transformers: War For Cybertron and Darksiders 2, who enter the charts at fifth and second place respectively.

While being unable to unseat Sleeping Dogs from its perch at the top of the charts, Darksiders 2 has sold better than its predecessor, shifting 80 per cent more units than the first Darksiders did. New Super Mario Bros. 2 slips from its debut position at 2 to 3 and the official tie-in game for the Olympics, London 2012: The Official Video Game, falls from third place to fourth. Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron, developed by High Moon Studios and published by Activision debuts at number 5.

The charts shape up as follows:

1. Sleeping Dogs (ranked 1 last week)
2. Darksiders 2 (new entry)
3. New Super Mario Bros. 2 (ranked 2 last week)
4. London 2012: The Official Video Game (ranked 3 last week)
5. Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron (new entry)
6. Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes (ranked 4 last week)
7. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (ranked 8 last week)
8. Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games (ranked 5 last week)
9 Batman: Arkham City (ranked 6 last week)
10. Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 (ranked 10 last week)
