Here are a bunch of Black Friday ads with videogames

I abhor everything to do with Black Friday since I worked in retail for nine years, but if you are the type of person willing to stand in line at the mall at 6 PM on Thanksgiving, then you might be interested in these ads. Go...

Target will have $150 3DS XLs for Black Friday

That gorgeous Zelda 3DS XL looks like its coming to USA

[Update: Nintendo's keeping tight-lipped. They say: "We have nothing to announce at this time."] It looks like that beautiful Link Between Worlds Zelda 3DS XL we told you was coming to Europe (and also Australia) is al...

GameStop offers big savings on last-gen for Black Friday

Can you feel it in the air? It's electric. It's like the buzz inside an arena seconds before your favorite band takes the stage. It makes my heart aflutter and almost brings a tear to my eye. That's right, it's just about tim...

750k Xbox 360s sold during Black Friday week in U.S.

Black Friday 2012: The 40 best deals  photo
Black Friday 2012: The 40 best deals
by Allistair Pinsof

The only thing more American than eating so much that you can't get up from the couch is waiting in line to buy a bunch of dumb stuff you don't need. Hey, don't look at me like that. I'm no judge! I just want to persuade as many possible shoppers to stay at home so I can nab one of those $15 Forza Horizon's for myself.

I trawled the deepest, darkest crevices of the internet to bring 40 awesome deals to light. Though I did not do the maths, I'm pretty sure you will save 5,000% on these deals and feel .05% better about your life as a consumer whore.
