September kicks off the fall season, but it also spells the beginning of the holiday deluge of games. The Xbox One has some exciting prospects in its future, so we’ve decided to pull together our favourite deals, sales, and discounts for Microsoft’s console. These include notable deals on the console itself, its controllers and accessories, and the games.
The Xbox One has some great bundles if you want to grab a game with your console, whether it be Xbox One S or X. The most notable bundle this month is the Gears 5 Limited Edition bundle that comes with the entire series (except for Gears of War: Judgment). On top of that, there are new controller deals this month, ahead of November’s release of the Xbox One Elite Series 2 controller. You can check out our picks below, including the snazzy Gears 5 Kate Diaz limited-edition controller, which is on sale for $10 off.
And of course, there are this month’s big Xbox One releases like Gears 5, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, and Borderlands 3, but you’ll also find discounts on some of our favourite previously released games. We’ll update this article with any other notable Xbox One deals that pop up throughout the month, but in the meantime, read on for the best Xbox discounts available now.
Quick look: Best Xbox One deals
Best Xbox One X deals
Xbox One X 1 TB – Gears 5 LE Bundle for $500
Coinciding with the September 6 release of Gears 5, Microsoft has a limited-edition, Gears-themed Xbox One X and controller bundle. It comes with Gears 5 and the previous four games in the series–Gears of War: Ultimate Edition takes the original game’s spot–at the usual bundle price tag of $500 USD.
Xbox One X 1 TB – Battlefield 5 Gold Rush SE for $400
You can pick up an Xbox One X by itself for $400, but if you want to pick up a couple of games with your console, then this bundle deal might be right for you. For $400, you get the special edition, gold air-brushed console with digital downloads of Battlefield 5 Deluxe Edition, Battlefield 1 Revolution, and Battlefield 1943.
Best Xbox One S deals
Xbox One S 1 TB Fortnite Battle Royale SE for $235
Usually sold for $300, this Xbox One S bundle is on sale for $235 and comes with a bunch of exclusive in-game content for Fortnite, including the Dark Vertex Cosmetic Set, 2000 V-Bucks, and more. However, as a purveyor of purple, the violet Xbox One S and controller are the true stars of this bundle.
Xbox One S 1 TB NBA 2K19 Bundle for $195
NBA 2K20 may almost be out, but if you want a disc drive-equipped Xbox One S, then this deal is a good one. $195 would be a good deal for a brand new Xbox One S on its own, but this bundle comes with a digital code for NBA 2K19, which is a nice bonus.
Best Xbox One controller deal
Gears 5 Kait Diaz LE for $65
This controller comes with the Xbox One X Gears 5 bundle shown earlier, but if you’re not interested in picking up a new console, you can still pick up this stylish controller on its own. Like the upcoming Xbox One Elite Series 2 controller, it features textured triggers for a little extra grip. And best of all, it’s currently $65, down from $75.
Best Xbox One game deals
Control for $37.50 (see full discount at checkout)
Control is the latest game from Remedy and one of my favourites this year. And according to tech analysis YouTube channel Digital Foundry, the Xbox One X version is the best when it comes to consoles. In our Control review, GameSpot’s Peter Brown said, “It’s not often that a game invades my thoughts the way Control has. I’m at the point where I want to consume every last thing it has to offer. And if I’m honest, it also makes me want to go back and replay Remedy’s past games, too.”

Best Xbox pre-order deals
Cyberpunk 2077 for $50
Cyberpunk 2077 is only $50 to pre-order at Amazon right now. If you wanted to grab CD Projekt Red’s Witcher follow-up for a little cheaper than normal, then now might be a good chance to do so.

Best Xbox Game Pass deal
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate’s first two months for $2
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is one of the best game subscription services out there. You get access to both the Xbox One and PC Game Pass libraries and an Xbox Live Gold membership for only $15 a month. One of the biggest perks is that you get access to Xbox’s first-party games and many third-party games right at launch. Void Bastards, Outer Wilds, and Blair Witch are among the third-party games that launched on Game Pass alongside their official launch. And if you have a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, you can play Gears 5 early with Ultimate Edition owners on September 6.
