Sony’s console PS4 has now doubled the Microsoft Xbox One sales. Sony announced that it has sold over 10 million of its PlayStation 4 consoles, which makes it one of the most successful ever.

The company released its latest sales figures during the Cologne Gamescom conference, where it unveiled its new feature of game sharing and confirmed that the micro console PS TV would be launched on October 14 in the U.S. and November 14 in the UK.

The console, which is just palm sized allows owners of PS4 to stream their games onto other TVs in their home. However, it also offers an access to applications that are third party such as Netflix.

Nostalgic gamers are also able to use the new device to back catalogue thousand of Sony classic games through PlayStation Now. The service however will be only available in Europe starting in 2015.

The palm-sized PS TV will be sold for $99 in the United States and in the United Kingdom £84.99. Customers can pay for a set or bundle that includes a DualShock 3 control.

Industry analysts believe the device could appeal to gamers that are older and do not want to spend so much on the PS4 but want to continue playing games from their PS1 or PS2.

The confidence Sony has in streaming technology was apparent with its SharePlay, a feature that was just announced. The SharePlay is for the PS4 and is described by Sony as working like a virtual couch.

Customers can share games amidst their friends remotely even though they are now owners of a game, through either handing their controller over in times of single player or playing together during co-op modes.

An update to the firmware of PS4 will introduce as well as YouTube app that has been long awaited for the console, which will let the gamers upload different footage from the site.
