‘Sleeping Dogs’ Draws The Hollywood Gamers [PHOTOS]

Last night, gamers gathered at Dim Mak Studios in Hollywood to test out the newest video game, Sleeping Dogs.

Guests including Audrina Patridge and 90210’s Shenae Grimes sipped on Sleeping Dogs inspired cocktails, took turns testing out the game, and danced to tunes spun by Marshall Barnes and DJ Rashida at the famed Dim Mak Studios which for the night was turned into a replica of little Hong Kong.

Sleeping Dogs is an open world crime drama video game, developed by United Front Games in conjunction with Square Enix London Studios and published by Square Enix, to be released on August 14, 2012 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Sleeping Dogs takes place in Hong Kong and focuses on an undercover operation to infiltrate the Triads. 

The game was originally in development as Black Lotus but was announced in 2009 as True Crime: Hong Kong, the third installment and a reboot of the True Crime series. As a result of the game¹s high development budget and delays, it was canceled by Activision in 2011. Six months later, it was announced that Square Enix had picked up the publishing rights to the game, but the game was reannounced as Sleeping Dogs in 2012 as Square Enix did not purchase the True Crime name rights.
