THQ will no doubt be disappointed to see their much hyped Darksiders sequel fail to seize top spot in the all formats chart from Sleeping Dogs, as Square Enix’s Hong Kong crime caper enjoying a second week at number one.
Elsewhere, the only other new entry (in the entire rest of the top 40) is Activion’s Transformers: Fall of Cybertron which debuts in fifth position, as the rest of the chart remains largely unchanged from the established order of the last few weeks.
