It is true that if you no longer use it, and you have also managed to get a new generation console, it can allow you a lot of games, accessories and even figurines if you are a fan!

Resell your PS4, yes, but under what conditions?

Going with Micromania to resell your PS4 (or any other console) is one thing, but the console you’re offering must still meet certain criteria.

These are cataloged by the Micromania company itself and allow you to see devices in good condition arriving at their warehouses.

First, you must:

  • be of age
  • show your ID
  • Present your Megacard (or create one for free)

In order for your console to be eligible, it must also be brought in in good working order and condition (no dents or cracks) with visible serial numbers (no original box required):

In order for Micromania to receive your console, it must be in good working order. It should be free of dents or cracks and the serial numbers should be visible. However, it is not necessary to return the original box. In addition, you also need:

  • that the console has never been disassembled (the seals ensure this guarantee).
  • An official controller in good condition, serial number readable and fully functional.
  • the power cable and an HDMI cable.
  • the accessories present with the new console (example for the OLED Switch: the comfort handle for the joy-cons, the dock, the straps), any missing element can be invoiced.

Some good things to know:

  • it is possible to bring replacement cables to the original cables. As long as they are functional, recovery can be accepted.
  • there is no need to format the console.
  • As part of your console trade-in, you can receive credits to use within 6 months only at Micromania stores.
