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.

Xbox One X 1 TB - Fallout 76 for $400
Fallout 76 has made a bit of a comeback, with some cool-looking updates on the way including the arrival of NPCs.

Best Xbox One controller deals
Gears 5 Kate Diaz LE controller 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.
Xbox One Wireless Controller - $37-45
Xbox One wireless controllers are currently on sale for varying prices at Ebay. You can take a look at the list below for all of the colour options and prices.
Pre-order the Xbox One Elite Series 2 controller
Everyone has games they're excited for this holiday, but for me, it's this controller. I'm a big fan of my Series 1 Elite controller, and with the promised changes, I can't wait to get my hands on the Series 2. Adjustable analog stick tension, an extra trigger position, and more configuration loadouts are among the promised updates.
Best Xbox One game deals
Control for $50
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."
