Sleeping Dogs (titled Sleeping Dogs: Hong Kong Secret Police in Hong Kong, Hong Kong) is an open world crime drama video game, developed by United Front Games in conjunction with Square Enix London Studios and published by Square Enix (Namco Bandai Games for Australia), to be released on August 14, 2012 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.[6] Sleeping Dogs will take place in Hong Kong and focuses on an undercover operation to infiltrate the Triads.
The game was originally in development as Black Lotus but was announced during 2009 as True Crime: Hong Kong, the third installment and a reboot of the True Crime series.[7] As a result of the game’s high development budget and delays, it was cancelled by Activision in 2011. Six months later, it was announced that Square Enix had picked up the publishing rights to the game, but the game was reannounced as Sleeping Dogs in 2012 as Square Enix did not purchase the True Crime name rights

True Crime has always been better than GTA IMO.

At least gameplay-wise. GTA may have the better extras, but the shooting, melee, and driving were always better in True Crime. Plus it always had the ever so innovative retry option after you've failed a mission...something GTA seemed to hate back then.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.

Never heard of it until last week, looks pretty good. I will keep my eye on it, game will probably drop quickly so I won't buy on release.

Not going to lie, I cringed a little when I saw that part. Going to be close if I can muster the money within two weeks for day 1 purchase.

Ugh...exclusive pre-order bonuses are kind of discouraging for me. I kind of wish I could get them all on day 1 without having to pre-order the game several times.

Got this pre-ordered at GS and Amazon. Think I will cancel GS since I prefer the other bonus.

I'll be renting Sleeping Dogs from Redbox and possibly picking up Darksiders 2 this weekend. I only played the demo of the first, so I want to wait and see what people have to say about it.

I planned on grabbing this as a rental from Redbox at midnight, but it says there are no kiosks within 100 miles that have it. They likely haven't even added it to the kiosks yet, but I know I have rented games on release day in the early morning before. Oh well, likely will just wait until it drops to $30 in 30 days anyway.

I'd give it time. When I first searched, it only showed 2 locations. I just now checked and 1 more location has been added.

Thanks for the info. So far, nothing yet. Likely just going to head to bed and see if I can grab it first thing in the morning.

No problem. The closest one to me is like 13 miles as of now. I would imagine by the morning, they will be in my town. Hopefully the same happens for you.
