Plus, the best Xbox One X bundle we’ve seen yet

We’ve been keeping tabs on Xbox One deals as Microsoft drops prices in anticipation of its next-generation console, the Xbox Series X. This week, though, Dell dropped the best deal we’ve seen yet. The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Xbox One X bundle was already discounted by $150, but Dell is sweetening the deal by throwing in a free extra controller.

In a returning deal, Amazon Prime members can save $20 off the new Xbox One Elite Wireless controller. The Elite Wireless has consistently been our favorite high-end Xbox controller; The Series 2, released in November, updates the model with a rechargeable battery instead of the AA batteries that are still needed for standard Xbox wireless controllers.

Finally, if you haven’t yet played Pokémon Sword and Shield, Amazon is offering either version of the new Pokémon title for $49, which is $10.99 off retail price.
