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.

Walmart's Black Friday deals put Best Buy to shame

Walmart just ripped out Best Buy's rib cage and dangled it over the angry horde of Black Friday mobsters. Why get Borderlands 2 at Best Buy for $34.99 when you can get it for $25 at Walmart? I can think of one good reason: Yo...
