UK chart: Sleeping Dogs hounds London 2012 Olympics from top spot

New Super Mario Bros. 2 counted in second.

Open-world crime drama Sleeping Dogs has bounded to the top of the UK all-format charts, toppling Sega's London 2012 Olympics tie-in.

The Hong Kong-set adventure beat Nintendo's New Super Mario Bros. 2 - although the former launched on three platforms, compared to the smaller 3DS userbase.

It's worth noting that Mario was also available to download from the 3DS eShop. Digital sales are not counted by UK listings company Chart-Track.

Little else changed in the rest of the chart - London 2012 was pushed down into third, ahead of Lego Batman 2 and Mario & Sonic: London Olympics 2012 in fourth and fifth, respectively.

The only other new entry was Disney Pixar film tie-in Brave, which arrived in 39th place.

The full chart lies below.
