Sleeping Dogs is very much the top dog this week, eclipsing the rising star of Guild Wars 2 that has sank down to sixth place (due to NCsoft temporarily restricting stock to manage the server populations). We discussed both titles at length in our cheeky extra PWNcast over the weekend, while Carl is still hard at work delivering the most in-depth review possible for ArenaNet's breakthrough MMO. Look out for a brand new Dealspwn playthrough later today.
Sims 3: Supernatural has entered the charts in second place, providing another reason to return to EA's evergreen life simulator, while Dead Island's GOTY edition has re-entered the top ten (probably thanks to a few price reductions).
Otherwise it's business as usual, featuring the likes of Darksiders II, LEGO Batman 2 and the official Olympics videogame in familiar positions. With Borderlands 2 and the silly season just around the corner, this is the calm before the storm.
