In just a few hours, France will be back in custody. Next generation consoles will pay dearly for this unfortunately necessary new health measure. The Xbox Series X / S all-access purchase could only be made in FNAC and Micromania stores. Suffice it to say that it will be dead by November 10th and that you will have to pay for your console in cash.
It’s not much better on the PS5 side as the consoles pre-ordered at Micromania … now have to be prepaid before tonight! Here is the email Micromania sent to all customers who pre-ordered the PS5:
– You reserved your PlayStation 5 and received an e-mail and / or a call telling you that it will be available on November 19th. Insured? We invite you to come to the store today to prepay your console and the shipping costs required for delivery. You can also prepay if you want to pay by credit or gift card. Thanks to this prepayment, we can send it straight to your home.
– Have you reserved your PlayStation 5 and paid for your console in advance in the store? We are forced to ask you to return to confirm your postal details and pay the shipping costs required for delivery.
-We’ll send it straight to your home. Did you pre-order your PlayStation 5 through our website and request delivery in the store? We will be in touch shortly.
Customers who miss the boat will not be able to receive the console at home and will therefore not have a PS5 on November 19th. The obligation to pay shipping costs for prepaid consoles may not be great for customers either, especially since the PS5 is as heavy as a dead horse. The associated shipping costs are therefore not symbolic.
