PlayStation 4 console sales have seen a massive 106% spike in the U.K. since the launch of Sucker Punch Productions’ InFamous: Second Son.

In a report ascertained by MCV, the news comes following the announcement that Sucker Punch’s free-roaming action title is the PS4’s second largest ever game launch, just behind that of Guerrilla Games’ Killzone: Shadow Fall. The game debuted at number one in the U.K. charts, usurping that of the Xbox One’s Titanfall.

Not only that, but the 106% increase is bigger than the jump in console sales that the Xbox One had following the release of Respawn Entertainment’s debut mech-shooter.
