PC-specific features for Sleeping Dogs detailed

Team Fortress 2 goodies are certainly appealing, but that's far from everything Sleeping Dogs has in store for PC gamers. United Front Games has broken down the PC-specific features in a blog post, including a high-resolution texture pack, plenty of optional graphical features, and key remapping.

For an overview, check out the embedded video. It doesn't cover all of the specifics, but it does run through the highlights. I've never really been one to pass on a game's console release because it wasn't pretty enough, except when we're talking open-world titles. There's simply too much to be gained.
