Sleeping Dogs E3 trailer is more than a little gruesome

Seriously, we're not kidding around. This new trailer is quite brutal. And not in the shooting-hundreds-of-dudes kind of way. More like the cut-with-a-scalpel and drilled-through-the-thigh kind of way. It's not for the faint of heart, but if you can make it through the first few scenes it may just grab your interest.

We warned you didn't we? Nevertheless, if that sort of thing is your bag, then you can look forward to Sleeping Dogs hitting store shelves sometime in August (official date still pending) for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
