Micromania-Zing, formerly Micromania is the major video game retail company in France[1] founded in 1983 by Albert Loridan.

In 2008 it was purchased by GameStop for approximately US$700 million (€480 million) in cash.[2]

In 2017 the company merged with its sister company Zing Pop Culture and changed its name to Micromania-Zing. Zing was launched in 2015 for distribution of derivative products of game francicses: manga, comics, films, etc. The consolidating merge addressed the decrease in gaming revenues.[3]
