PC gaming is dead… or so the saying goes.
Rampant piracy and NPD's numbers that show that consoles are beating PC games at every turn at retail makes it seem as if the PC gaming market were a hostile place.
The success of digital retailers such as Steam and GOG tell a different story. Despite that, PC gamers are often left in the dust. AAA games often launch on PC months after consoles have received the title. Often, they're poorly done ports with a host of issues that are never fixed. Sometimes, publishers neglect to bring their games to PCs at all, unwilling to deal with such hassles.
Square Enix is taking steps to make PC gamers aware that it won't be neglecting them with Sleeping Dog's launch. Not only will there be plenty of Valve-themed items for those who preorder the game through Steam, the game itself takes advantage of the platform. The publisher promises that the game will support 1080p and run at 60 fps. Direct X 11 will be supported.
As visual proof of what Sleeping Dogs will look like when maxed out on PC, the publisher's even showed off a video of in-game footage with commentary.

Sleeping Dogs will be coming to PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 in a few days on August 14, 2012.
