Is this the end of specialty video game stores? Already in difficulty before the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the firm Micromania once again made the “buzz” today with console rental offers Playstation 5 et Switch at "crazy" prices.
WHO WANTS TO RENT HIS GAMING CONSOLE TODAY?
It is the controversy of the day that is becoming more and more important on social networks. By unveiling its game console rental offer (Playstation 5, Switch and soon X-Box Series), Micromania finds himself in a veritable whirlwind of criticism. Shortage requires, some will probably not hesitate to go through an offer considered totally delusional by a good part of the gaming community.
The plans range from € 17,49 / month (for 24 months) up to € 24,99 / month for the PS5 or € 19,99 / month for the Switch, with a first payment of € 44,99 or 69,99, 2 € depending on the console. Depending on the rental option chosen, you will be able to benefit from a XNUMXnd controller, a voucher, sponsorship, or even insurance covering the risks of oxidation and breakage, as well as repair or replacement of equipment (including levers) as appropriate.

A good plan ? Nothing is less certain because for around 500 € in total at the end of the contract, you will have to return the console! If the offer may seem far-fetched, it should be understood that this rental system exists today for almost all types of products and in particular household appliances. And you ? Would you be ready to rent your game console?
