JB's 2 For $40 Sale Is Even Better

If you need a scary shooter and a couple of decent open-world adventures, JB has a solid sale going on right now.

The offer is pretty straightforward: buy two of the nominated games, spend $40. You can buy most of the games individually for around $25 or $30, but the bundling is where the value is.

And you will get value for your money: there's a range of Bethesda's hits from last year, including Prey and Dishonored 2, as well as the remastered Uncharted games and Watch Dogs 2.

Update (6/03): JB has updated the list of eligible games, adding crackers like Horizon: Zero Dawn, the WipEout remaster and the latest Uncharted game.

You can view the full list here, but here's the pick of the bunch:

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (PS4)
WipEout: Omega Collection (PS4)
Agents of Mayhem (PS4/XBO)
Dragon Quest Heroes 2 (PS4)
StarBlood Arena (PSVR)
Farpoint (PSVR)
For Honor (PC/PS4/XBO)
The Last Guardian (PS4)
Everybody's Golf (PS4)
Far Cry 4 (PS4/XBO)
Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4)
Shadow Warrior (PS4/XBO)
Gauntlet (PC)
The Last of Us Remastered (PS4)
Wolfenstein: The New Order (PC/XBO)
Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Edition (PS4/XBO)

DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition (XBO)
The Evil Within (PC/XBO)
Red Dead Redemption GOTY (360/XBO)
Murdered Soul Suspect (PS4/XBO)
Batman: Arkham Origins (Wii U)

I don't know who would actually want Arkham Origins on the Wii U these days, but hey, drop $20 on it if you want. There's some good prices on PSVR games - Eagle Flight and Bridge Crew is a good pair - and being able to grab XCOM 2 and Prey isn't a bad way to spend $40.


    I've been eyeing off Xcom 2 & Watch Dogs 2 so I'm sold. Thanks for this guys, very helpful

      I found the characters in Watchdogs 2 to be so painful I couldn’t play it.

      Everyone complained that the characters in the first game where white and boring, but it turns out that the only thing worse than white and boring is Disney-level inclusive over the top hipsters. I found it f*cking unbearable! It’s like a tech version of The Fast and the Furious.

        I was exactly the same couldn’t stand the character in 2 so never played more than an hour or so. I must have been one of the few people that enjoyed the first one.

          Nope. I thought the first one was a really good game with some cool moments and way better systems than GTA but it was ultimately disappointing visually compared to original trailers, driving was jank, protagonist was boring, the story was forgettable and it was full of Ubi-Bloat/map-mess.
          I really hope Watch_D0gs replaces AssCreed every 2nd year though.

        Overall I actually didn't mind the first game, missed opportunities and massive hype train derailment aside. The characters and story were an acceptable type of bland.

        I enjoyed the technical and gameplay improvements of WD2 but yeah - those characters...

        I spent a large part of the game simply hating and getting frustrated with the painful too kool for skool trope krew. I'm not a violent person in RL, but if I could have got my hands on those at Ubisoft responsible for that shit - I'd be happily swimming in their cancerous blood.

        If Ubisoft dropped the Politically Correct shtick and got more ubihard, they would have some supremely fantastic games. But their agenda pushing ethos isn't going away anytime soon.

    i read the title as JB-HiFi is doing a Descent 2 for $40 dollars again and was going huh?

      LOL. Have they ‘remastered’ Descent 2?

    Just did a double take when I saw Tearaway for PS4/XBO, that doesn't seem accurate. I wonder if Sony knows that they snuck out an Xbone build when nobody was looking ;V

    There's this one which is sold out in a lot of JBHi stores that's DOUBLE that price for a SINGLE game ;)

    Don't forget Knack. With this offer, you could buy two copies for only $40. That's one for you, and one for your best friend!

      It’s also free this month on ps plus

        So what you're saying is that you can actually get three copies of Knack for only $40 now?

          Not really. If you don’t renew your PS+ subscription straight away you lose the games they “gave” you.
          They’re not really free at all.

            Nah, long as you renew again they come back. Trust me I've forgotten to re-up a few times.
            That was the case originally though. Hasn't been that way for a few years.

            Ahh dammit, now I'll have to buy 4 copies of Knack just to make sure I've got one on hand for when I really need it.

    Ewww ... physical copies of games ....

      I know, rite? Those crazy PCOs (physical copy owners) have to put up with finding storage space for games, having bad backs from the undue exertion of changing discs, generally paying lower prices, and being able to trade and lend their games. Think of the unnecessary germs they spread!

        ... the undue exertion of changing discs ...

        Truth be told. This is the main reason I'm all digital. Sometimes that five feet to the console is a bridge too far ...

          Get a trained helper monkey. If it's terrible at its job, or dies in the line of duty, at least you get to eat a delicious monkey.

            Only if they can find another monkey to bring the dead one over to the couch.

              Can't you just Amazon that?

                I asked Alexa. She couldn't help me ... and I think she may have reported me to Animal Welfare at the same time.

                Yeah, but you've gotta make sure you have an Amazon Primate subscription.

                Otherwise it doesn't get to you "in time".

          but watching my toddler flee in fright when she accidentally ejects the disk is too hilarious.

    Grabbing Xcom 2 & Horizon Zero Dawn after work, thanks for the heads up.

    I did not know there was a new wipeout out.. hmm this might tip me over to get a PlayStation that and planetside 2 hmm..

    FYI - Square Enix sale on the Microdoft Store at the moment - Much better prices than some advertised here including Just Cause 3, Murdered Soul Suspect, Tom Raider reboots etc.
    Worth checking out. Mike.
