Order a pizza on your Xbox 360, thanks to Pizza Hut app

There's a chance that, during an extended session of BioShock Infinite on your Xbox 360, you might be craving a delicious pizza, and let's be honest: who can be bothered to find a computer, or pick up a phone to get that pizza delivered to your house. Now, thanks to a brand new app from Pizza Hut, you won't have to leave your couch to get that pizza on your doorstep.

The Pizza Hut for Xbox app allows customers to order a pizza from the entire range available in Pizza Hut stores, including other items such as breadsticks and pasta. You can use your Kinect to customize a pizza if you so choose, using hand gestures and voice commands to pile on the perfect combination of toppings. After making the perfect order, you can link up your PizzaHut.com account to save it for future orders, and even share your order with your friends through Facebook integration.

The app was developed in a partnership between Microsoft and Pizza Hut, with Xbox's Larry Hyrb saying "Pizza Hut is a recognized brand that matches up well with the Xbox brand". It'll be available on your Xbox 360 on April 23rd, with Pizza Hut offering 15% off your first order using the app up until May 6th. At this stage it appears as though the app will only be available for Pizza Hut in the United States, but we hope it'll eventually come to international customers as well.

Ha..Ha.. Now all the bachelors staying at mom's basement playing xbox whole day do not need to ask mom for her phone. They just need mom's credit card and order pizza through xbox. I don't know what world has become.

Careful, look at my posts at the beginning of this topic. Apparently people think this app is awesome for everyone. Most of the youngs ones on here will flame you.

This kinda stuff is what makes Apps look like useless website copies..... I remember when an App was an application not a website "applet"

I don't know about where you guys are but Pizza Hut is one of the worst pizzas in town where I'm at. I agree that pizza isn't the best thing for you to eat but as a treat every so often it's not that bad, depending on the toppings. But there are a lot worse foods out there than pizza. This definitely doesn't help society but if you don't like it, don't download it. I'm a parent and I'd be more worried that my son would order a pizza without me knowing until it got to the door.

It's not really, a gamer, stoned or otherwise wouldn't quit their game to launch this app, they would pause it and order by phone or via their website.

It would be even cooler if you can create a bunch of varieties of your favorite pizzas with the app then have those favorite push to w8/wp8 apps or vise versa.

Then if you're at a buddies house you could then find the closest pizza hut using the apps gps then bind that order to that loacation and preto we have pizza.

We order pizza about once every two or three months.
Maybe the app keeps track of your order history and locks you out if you order two days in a row.

Pizza Hut sells tacos?

They could, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut are both owned by Yum brands... In Oakland, Pa (Pittsburgh) there use to be a Taco Chicken Hut (Taco Bell, KFC and Pizza Hut all at the same place) you ordered them all together... so technically Pizza Hut could sell tacos.... I know the one in my town sells KFC also..... so you could order Pizza and Mashed Potatoes together with drumsticks if you wanted...

Wow, and we thought obesity was an epidemic now! Wait until couch potatoes get a hold of this. Hey, more pu$$y for me I guess.

Yeah sure, because ordering by phone burns a lot more calories

No but getting your fat behind up to make a deli sandwhich is! The whole point of my post was to show the ease of getting fatter. The world gets fatter as we speak because of laziness.

I know what you're trying to get at but that was a god awful example. Getting up to make a deli sandwich and getting up to get the pizza delivery probably burns an equal number of calories.

Hey, anything that keeps population levels down is fine by me.

Yeah, also the same size serving of pizza and a deli sandwich can have the same calorie count, it's all bread, meat, vedgetables and sauce.

How was that a bad example. I've been in the military now for 17 years and I am as fit as a whIstle. When my buddies come over to game we have fruits salads, carrots, nuts, and crackers to snack on while we play. When we are hungry, we go make a good sandwhich or my girl cooks some food. It just saddens me that our youth today is growing up like this. It's the nature defecit disorder. Everything comes easy and we no longer have to try, everything is catered. I'm all for gaming as a way to unwind but when we have companies releasing apps like this it doesn't help this situation. It's really sad folks. Look around at your neighborhood schools, look at your own family members. It's an epidemic. It's not just the U.S. I was stationed in Europe for 8 years and they too have a crisis of lard a$$.

Does your girlfriend know that you post stuff like "Hey, more pu$$y for me I guess."
Yes, we are in an open relationship. Not to get to personal, but one of her friends, is really "friendly", and shares out intimate moments. I'm not ready to settle down and she knows this. But anyhow, I was just saying we have an epidemic an big companies are getting rich off of us.

I like eating pu$$y more than pizza too.

Come on now man, you are comparing a pizza with a health deli sandwich? I'm not talking a ham sandwich with mayo and cheese.

Yes I am, like I said it CAN have the same calorie count, there's some very healthy pizzas available to order at pizza hut.

Ok, never mind. You obviously didn't read my post. When someone who knows about fitness and health makes a sandwich, its a sandwich that cannot be compared to pizza. For the last time, I am not talking about your regular ham and cheese sandwich smothered with mayo. Just......never mind......

I just think you're trying way too hard to sound like you're right
Sure pal. You obviously are one of those gamers and feel the need to defend this app. I'm looking on Pizza Huts website and I do not see a pizza under 300 calories. Their Veggie pizza is 180 calories per slice. My sandwiches are normally between 2-275 calories. Since your are the fitness guru and have been around fine tune machines like those I see everyday, please educate me!

From pizzas to threesomes. Only on the internet.

Anyway, I'm very fit, run a lot, spend too much time doing weights, situps, lunges, squats, and boxing. But I would LOVE this app. Can't wait to download it and order me some pizza so I can chill out, unwind, and knife people in the face in COD.

I'll leave you alone. Just saw your profile and your only 26 years old. I've been in fitness since you were probably 5 years old.

hey my man, you work hard for it! My issue is with young kids who live inside all day, prone to diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and then depression. These apps prey on the already weak. You are good to go though!

Yeah because learning how to eat well and exercise takes at least 15 years.

Nice! :-)

Nope it's a state of mind. You're either going to live to eat or eat to live. We make our own choices in life. When I can help a young person stay out of the E.R. at 30 years old because of clogged arteries, then I sleep better at night. Doesn't take a rocket scientist. Again, big corporations are running to the bank because of people trapped in a world of laziness. You still haven't answered my questions. You continue to post sly remarks with nothing to add to your claim.

The fact you actually think Pizza Hut has some "healthy" pizza's makes everything you've said irrelevant. You don't know what real healthy food is.

Actually there are some healthy pizzas because in case you did not know some fat is not a bad thing in fact it's good for you once in a while.

It does not matter how you eat. If you sit and eat all day long, you get overweight. But, if you exercise/workout a couple of times a week... you'd be in good shape. That's how that works. If people do not exercise/workout at all, that's their problem, not ours.

Was that a "The Net" reference..?

Yup. I remember The Net that she ordered pizza online on her PC. And I still have the screensaver that she had on her PC in that movie.
