ABOUT SLEEPING DOGS
Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, Sleeping Dogs is a gritty open world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Taking the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, players are tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organizations from the inside – the Sun On Yee Triad.
Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbor dock or city skyscraper can become an opportunity for intense shoot-outs, adrenaline-fuelled street races and intense, brutal martial arts combat. Featuring an intuitive and imaginative combat system, Sleeping Dogs empowers players to perform an extensive set of martial arts moves, single-handedly taking on numerous opponents. Players perform bone-crushing kicks and combos, vicious counters, and a cinematic set of environmental takedowns making use of countless real-world items from circular saws to phone booths, incinerators to refrigerator doors.

@bleachedsmiles: i frankly just want ico 1.5 it'd be GOTY just for being that. ico is one of my favorite games. (30 minutes ago)
but yeah, I don't reckon it'll be a big game. I hope it does open up though...not a series of corridoor puzzles. (32 minutes ago)
I hope it does come out next year...i dont think they can afford to keep pushing it back now after placing 2016 on it after all this time (33 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: they would have shown a completely new setting if it's progressed much further...although we don't know what that actually means. They may have done sweet FA on ps3 (34 minutes ago)
@bleachedsmiles: it's progressed much further now apparently thanks to the tech restaints of PS3 being lifted, and is set for next year. i'm expecting a pretty short one anyway, like ico. (38 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: probably why it looked a bit better visually on ps3 years ago... what they showed is prob as far as they got with ps3 version..doubt it'll be out next year, unless its a short digital only (40 minutes ago)
