    Not that it’s bad thing, I just expected SE would make a sequel instead.

    • Budgiecat

      Now we need SEGA to make Shenmue HD Collection…

      to gear up for Shenmue III

    • Elvick

      Like how they didn’t work on TR2 when they made the Definitive Edition… oh wait. It didn’t affect anything. DF was outsourced too and before it was announced they already confirmed TR2 was in development.

  • Anime10121

    I thought this was gonna say something about a sequel :(

    Oh well, it’ll likely be like TR, get a rerelease on current gen hardware and THEN unveiling Triad Wars :D

  • Azuardo

    Hope this is true. My fave open world game. Love it. More people need to play it to get hype for the sequel!

  • Kougeru

    Eh. I dont see the point. PC version goes on sale for so cheap lately all the time and I imagine console gamers that care already have it and wouldnt pay that much money for a port they already have

  • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

    Never played it. If this rumor is true,I’ll get it for the PS4.

    • Anime10121

      Do ET! SO gud :)

      Reinvigorated my interest in the open world genre for me and it honestly aint even got THAT MUCH to do! Just has that certain “charm” I guess :P And it helps that combat is fun!

      • BossTuff

        I will totally double dip on this. This game was a huge surprise to me, in a good way. I couldn’t stop playing it.

        • Anime10121

          Cant say I’d double dip, there are few games that’d make me do so (dont even do it for fighters), but yeah, its a blast to play!

      • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

        Wow, response is crazy! I’d better get it then, when it comes out.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Wonder if it will even come with all the DLC…

  • Jack Frost Hee ho

    Re-Release…not so fussed about. A sequel I’d have probably just jumped out of my chair and punched the air in celebration.
    Maybe not that extreme.
    May even more so.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Well, they’ve already told us Triad Wars is on the way, so it’s just a matter of time before they’re ready to reveal it. With Tomb Raider announced this week and Hitman set for Gamescom, maybe we’ll hear about it before the year is through.

  • Articuno76

    I actually have this for the PC. Played the beginning bit a few times and enjoyed it, but life always came up.

    I’ve wouldn’t mind playing it on the PS4 if it meant I didn’t have to listen to my aging computer sound like an aircraft carrier taking off (and then subsequently crashing and burning).

    Can’t get over how the main character was as Asian Nathan Drake (admit it. you see the resemblance).

  • Zackasaur

    An HD re-release is good news for those who are looking for a sequel. This basically guarantees it.

    • Nesther

      Triad Wars has been confirmed almost a year ago.

      • Zackasaur

        I am well aware, of course.

        My point is that they have been silent since then, but an HD re-release means that they are looking for income and to bolster the potential pre-order fanbase for the impending sequel.

  • usagi_san

    A man who never plays Sleeping Dogs is never a whole man.

  • Nesther

    An “HD” re-release for PC is beyond silly.

    • Budgiecat

      yeah I question that…..

    • Zackasaur

      Not if they do significant upgrades.

      For example, PC players were upset that they did not get Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

      • Elvick

        Some PC fanboys were delusional though and thought the PC version was still better. Despite some things being redone for DF, like Lara’s character model, physics on her equipment, real fog, etc.

        Crazy kids.

        • Zackasaur

          PC fanboys live in a constant state of delusion.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Yooo. I was just playing this the other day. Would totes buy it for PS4. Hope it comes with the DLC.

  • Zero

    I still want a sequel. If it comes with all the DLC, then it will be worth it. I might buy it again.

    • Gigus

      In MFG’s words, Believe.

  • Bob Obb

    I don’t even remember this game

  • Blaz

    I bought it for PS3 and PC i ain’t gonna buy it again.

  • Budgiecat

    I enjoyed this game way more than any Gta or Saints Row title and even the Batman games..

    • Gigus

      Glad you did cat. Did you finish any of the other DLCs yet?

      • Budgiecat

        I finished the Enter the Dragon like one but not the haunted one..

        • Gigus

          Do it. The halloween themed one is worth it. Don’t tell me you’re still trying to date that NPC you like lol.

          • Zackasaur

            You can date NPCs? lol

            Sorry, I’ve yet to play the game.

            • Gigus

              Nope. Just something weird he told me. Ask the cat >.>

              • Zackasaur


        • LunarHaven

          Enter the Dragon DLC was classic, some of those fights were badass and actually put my skills up against the wall. Hope the sequel is as good as this game was.

    • BlazingSkies

      Me too. That kind of combat was just what I needed for an open world GTA-esque game. Also, hijacking.

  • HighBrowDrifter

    All these ports!…Holy Dong

  • Takane Shijou

    My pork buns are ready.

    • 武神水樹


  • bloodiOS

    Aw yiss! Please be true!

  • Zechs

    I enjoyed Sleeping Dogs, but I won’t be buying it again though. I hope they’ll make a sequel. :)

    • Solomon_Kano

      They’ve already announced the sequel. Triad Wars.

  • ShadowFang

    They absolutely should – do the “Tomb Raider double-dip” and find more success/larger audience. Sleeping Dogs is fantastic and I cannot believe that it’s mostly ignored. Even against GTA V, Sleeping Dogs is still better. What a fantastic game. The groups who decide what games need to be mainstream and hype them up incessantly really dropped the ball when they chose to ignore Wei Shen’s amazing title.

  • LustEnvy

    LOVE this game. I have it on PS3, and PC, and I’m STILL considering it for the PS4. It’s just too good. Triple-dipping? Yes… just….yes.

  • LunarHaven

    This game def. crushed GTA V.. GTA may have bigger budgets, and it may have more explorable areas (that contain absolutely nothing and is a waste of space). But the combat in Sleeping Dogs was INSANELY good while the melee and even the shooting in GTA V was pathetic to be honest. I prefer Hong Kong cinema to Hollywood LA flicks any day.

    • Budgiecat

      did you play Stranglehold, Rise to Honor, Yakuza, Shenmue and true crime LA?

      • LunarHaven

        Dude, Yakuza is one of my favorite ”realistic” Japanese series of all time, those super moves are beyond classic. Kiryu is also a BADASS main character. Love it. Never played Rise to Honor and Stranglehold yet though, good stuff?

  • $61526767

    I wouldn’t mind playing this game again. I had a blast playing through all missions, side missions. Including earning the platinum. Which took a lot out of me. I look forward to re-playing this game again. This time, it would be cool to include some more extra songs.

    • Budgiecat

      Also getting to date the singer chick that felt up your nuts..

  • Elvick

    Would buy. I got it from PS+ but have no room on my PS3 for it so never played it. Hear great things, and would be willing to give it a whirl. Plus, open world games with some remote play is awesome.

  • Gintoki79

    Sleeping dogs > Gta v.
    I enjoyed playing sleeping dogs more , it was more fresh, with a good gameplay system. Gta v is way overrated.

  • Kurisu Makise

    Please be true, I mean, I own the game via PS+ on PS3 but…I’d put real money for an 8th Gen HD release. 1080p/60fps Sleeping Dogs? Shut up and take my money!

    • Budgiecat

      not just the resolution and framerate though. I would want them to use better textures, more detailed character models, better lighting (you’d think if S-E want their Western games to sell better, they’d help em out a bit by lending them some dev tools like Luminous Engine etc).

      Especially since I played and beat the game already.

      Same goes for Sony’s the Last of Us: just a slight cosmetic boost instead isn’t enough and it annoys me that they know they can get away with very little (Madden effect) due to consumers accepting less.tLoU
      Remastered should have improved A.I. like the game originally promised…

  • SuperLuigi

    My favorite non superpower/fantasy open world game last gen. Would buy again.

  • 武神水樹

    I’m confused, people here love it more than GTA but I heard it didn’t sell well

    • Zero

      I’m pretty sure it ended up selling well for a new IP. That’s just it though, GTA has the brand name, this was a brand new IP with less power behind it marketing wise.

      It was more word of mouth and such that helped it sell over time. I know I recommended it quite often on here, and to friends and such offline.

  • Willgaea

    I thought that was Bruce Lee.

  • SOLOmio

    this was a good game especially the Dlc’s!!
