UK Top 10 Games: 21st August 2012

This week Square Enix's Sleeping Dogs swooped in at No. 1. The title, once known as True Crime: Hong Kong, became a somewhat unexpected critical success - this and today's strong chart debut may see Sleeping Dogs become a new franchise for Square.

But Sleeping Dogs did have some competition in the form of New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the 3DS. Despite being released on just one platform, the game manages to debut just below Sleeping Dogs at No. 2. These two new entries knock last week's No. 1, London 2012: The Official Video Game down two places to No. 3.

There are no new entries this week, however Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 does re-enter the top 10 due to a price cut.

Here's the top 10 in full (All Formats, All Prices):

1. (-) Sleeping Dogs
2. (-) New Super Mario Bros. 2
3. (1) London 2012: The Official Video Game
4. (2) Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
5. (3) Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games
6. (4) Batman: Arkham City
7. (5) The Amazing Spider-Man
8. (10) Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
9. (9) Dead Island: GOTY Edition
10. (20) Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7

That's all for this week, come back next week for more. In the meantime, here's a trailer for this week's new No. 1 - Sleeping Dogs:
