Tekken Tag Tournament highest new entry at second, but not enough to topple Square Enix's crime caper.

Square Enix’s sandbox crime caper Sleeping Dogs has once more kept one step ahead of the chasing pack, topping the all formats games charts for a fourth week in five.
Competition came in the shape of Namco Bandai’s freshly released brawler Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and the usual suspects in the shape of Nintendo’s New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Lego Batman 2 while EA’s NHL 13 was the week’s second highest new entry.
Predictions for next week: 2K’s Borderlands 2, Codemaster Racing’s F1 2012 and Konami’s PES 2013.
