Sleeping Dogs Arrives August 14
It was just a couple of months ago when Square Enix announced Sleeping Dogs, the upcoming cop drama that is the spiritual sucessor to the True Crime series. At the time, all Square Enix would say is the game would arrive later this year, but now we know when. Sleeping Dogs will arrive on August 14th for the PC, PS3, and 360, with different pre-order bonuses announced for different stores. The downloadable PC version will have its bonuses revealed later, so all of these are for retail copies. Best Buy, GameStop, and Amazon each have unique offers to obtain your dollar, and it is your chance on the store to go with. Best Buy will receive the Georges St. Pierre pack (he was a consultant on the game), while GameStop and Amazon will have police and martial arts-themed packs, respectively.
Square Enix has not said whether the pre-order packs will be available for purchase later, but one can hope. You can check out the full list below to see which one interests you the most.
