Even if it was on PS+, I still got excited when Sleeping Dogs was announced as a Games with Gold game. Not because I have Xbox Live Gold and not because I plan to, but because that game is so fucking great a lot more people get to experience it and I'm more hopeful for a sequel.
Hopefully it'll get a good word of mouth going. Also, SE already announced that the sequel was greenlit, so maybe they'll be given a bigger budget by way of word of mouth.
I thought the only thing they had announced was the Triad Wars thing? Which didn't sound exactly like a direct sequel.
I just took it as a sequel by another name. Because I mean, it's kind of hard to continue Wei's story.
The way they were talking about it made it seem (to me) to be a different kind of game entirely.
