Square Enix and developer United Front Games make it two weeks in a row at Number 1 in the All Formats, All Prices UK Gfk Chart-Track video games chart with Sleeping Dogs and this is despite a 15% drop in sales.

The beat-em-up (reviewed by Mark right here) has beaten both Darksiders II (reviewed here) and even the mighty franchise that is the Transformers (Fall of Cybertron reviewed here), which enter the chart at numbers 2 and 5 respectively.

Chart-Track lays out the rest of the detail as follows:

New at No2 is THQ's Darksiders 2 which does considerably better than the original Darksiders with 80% more units sold in week 1. Original Darksiders launched week 1, 2010 and was also developed by Vigil Games, a THQ studio. Nintendo's 3DS New Super Mario Bros 2 (-25%) drops from a debut position of No2 to No3 this week and Sega drop one place to No4 with London 2012: The Official Videogame (-31%) which has not been out of the Top 5 yet. A No4 position for London 2012 is a joint lowest chart placing for this title, shared with week 1 (week 26, 2012). The only other new entry this week is Activision Blizzard's Transformers: Fall of Cybertron at No5, which is the direct sequel to Transformers: War for Cybertron released back in week 25, 2010, both games predominantly developed by High Moon Studios, an Activision studio.
