UK chart: Sleeping Dogs denies Darksiders 2

But sales up on first Darksiders' launch week.

Pork bun-munching Hong Kong adventure Sleeping Dogs has seen off THQ challenger Darksiders 2 to remain top of the UK all-format chart.

Darksiders 2 launched last Tuesday, ensuring an extra three days of sales before the usual Friday releases. It wasn't enough.

Still, it beat the opening week sales of the first Darksiders game by 80 per cent - although that launched on a Friday.

How did last week's other releases fare? Eurogamer 8/10 awardee Transformers: Fall of Cybertron arrived in fifth place.

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die on PC did not survive the chart's top 40 at all, although digital download sales aren't counted by sales company Chart-Track.

New Super Mario Bros. 2, last week's number two, slipped just one place to third. Sega's London 2012 Olympics tie-in was fourth.
