Black Friday 2012: The 40 best deals

What are you buying, stranger?

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.
