JB Hi-Fi has a pretty good deal on at the moment for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners. For a limited time, you can snap up two games for $40. We take a look at the best titles.
It wasn’t that long ago that PS4 and Xbox One games cost $80+ a pop. Now you can bag a pair for just 40 bucks. Not too shabby!
Handily, JB Hi-Fi is allowing you to mix and match between formats, so if you own both consoles you can buy one game for each system and still get the deal. Here are our personal picks from JB Hi-Fi’s selection. Buying for the kids and have no idea about video games? Never fear; we’ve indicated which ones are child-appropriate.
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Remastered:
One of the best games of the previous console generation remastered for the PS4. If you somehow haven’t played this game yet, snap it up now. If you let your kids watch Indiana Jones movies they can probably handle this.
- Little Big Planet 3:
A kid-friendly platformer that lets you build your own levels. Criminally underrated and very, very cute.
- Tearaway: Unfolded Messenger Edition:
An endearing platform–adventure game from the makers of LittleBigPlanet where everything takes place in a storybook-type world made of paper.
- Dishonored Definitive Edition: A spruced-up remake of the original PS3 action adventure game. Dark, brooding and bloody. (Also available on Xbox One.)
- Alien: Isolation:
A terrifying survival horror game set in the Alien universe that takes its cues from the first movie. (Also available on Xbox One.)
- The Wolf Among Us:
A mature, story-driven adventure game based on the popular comic series Fables. (Also available onXbox One.)
- ZOMBI: One of the better zombie survival games to come out in recent years. (Also available on Xbox One.)

One for the kiddies. (Also available on PS4.)
- Rare Replay:
Contains 30 classic Rare games from the 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit eras, including Knight Lore, Battletoads, Banjo-Kazooie and Perfect Dark.

AKA the poor man’s Tekken. Originally released in the arcades in 1994, this all-new version features the same characters with suped-up graphics.
- Fallout 4:
This epic, post-Apocalyptic RPG is pretty well regarded and will take many hours to finish. (Also available on PS4.)

Possibly the only good thing to come out of Peter Jackson’s souless movie adaptation.
There are quite a few additional options to choose from if none of these take your fancy. Head to JB Hi-Fi to see the full selection.
