Dog days

Sleeping Dogs has displaced former frontrunner London 2012 in the UK sales charts race. The title’s position will certainly rub salt into the wounds of previous publisher Activision, who canned the project in 2011 over fears it wouldn’t sell. The company’s executives will be dining on a hearty slice of humble pie tonight, we suspect.

Elsewhere, the chart makes for familiar reading. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes dropped down into fourth, while Batman: Arkham City held onto sixth. The Amazing Spider-Man slipped into seventh, while LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 apparated into tenth.
