More from the talkative Destination PlayStation event - this time concerning True Crime.
According to a tweet by Future Shop Gamer, which attended the event, Square Enix has revealed Sleeping Dogs, due out on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in August.
Future Shop also published an image, which looks a lot like True Crime: Hong Kong, the game Square Enix picked up after Activision ditched it halfway through development.
Square Enix has picked up the rights to open world action title True Crime: Hong Kong following Activision's decision to pull the plug on the game earlier this year.
Oft-demonised Activision boss Bobby Kotick has outlined a few of the ways in which the publisher attempts to encourage and reward innovation within its ranks.
Guitar Hero is still alive, Activision has said.
United Front Games, the Canadian studio behind the recently canned True Crime: Hong Kong, has confirmed a number of redundancies.
Open world actioner True Crime: Hong Kong was cancelled because it just wasn't up to scratch, according to publisher Activision.
The Guitar Hero franchise has been officially killed off following consistent decline in the music sector, Activision has announced.

Activision has delayed open world action game True Crime: Hong Kong.
Activision has denied "killing" a Black Lotus assassin game by Treyarch (and later resurrecting it as True Crime: Hong Kong) because it had a female hero.
True Crime's plot, while perfectly serviceable, is pretty traditional stuff, so let's kick off with a relevant paradox or two instead. They may not actually be genuine paradoxes, obviously, as I'm quite thick.
There's no getting away from it. Yes, the new True Crime game looks a bit like Grand Theft Auto. But the old True Crime games were a bit like Grand Theft Auto, so that comes as no surprise. More intriguing is the longer list of titles from which this new instalment in the series has taken its cues. Burnout, Batman, Ghost Recon, Need for Speed, Mirror's Edge, Assassin's Creed, Ratchet & Clank, Bejeweled... All of these games are referred to during the course of our 45 minute demo, and only the last one as a joke.
Triads! Motorbikes! Explosions! Stunts!
A new instalment in Activision's True Crime series is in development.
