United Front Games' Sleeping Dogs increasingly sounds like something I need to get my hands on. That'll have to wait a few more months, unfortunately -- Square Enix has announced an August 14 release date in North America for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
Wasting no time whatsoever, the publisher is also talking up the pre-order incentives for Sleeping Dogs. Amazon has the "Martial Arts" Pack, Best Buy is giving out the "Georges St. Pierre" Pack, and your friendly neighborhood GameStop is offering the "Police Protection" Pack.
I lack the energy to get sincerely upset about this practice any more, so there you are. At least they were nice enough to disclose that the digitally distributed PC version will also have its own exclusives.
Best Buy: "Georges St. Pierre (GSP)" Pack:
GameStop: "Police Protection" Pack:
Amazon: "Martial Arts" Pack:
