Pizza Hut launches Xbox 360 delivery app.

This lack of focus on gaming is troubling. I couldn't care less about shit like this, or the ads it brings to the dashboard.


Meh. EQ did the same thing back in the day. "/pizza" opened up the PizzaHut Delivery URL in your browser.
Didn't WoW do this too? I don't remember if it was Pizza Hut or not.

Might be neat if they could do it entirely through kinect voice commands and not pause the running game. "Xbox! Order one large pepperoni pizza".

But since I'll never own an xbox I'll settle for the old fashioned methods.

"Xbox! Turn off these fucking ads and find some exclusive games!"

That's when I'll buy one again

I tried doing this for the first time the other day.
"XBOX, YouTube."
Nothing.
"XBOX, My Apps"
Doesn't show YouTube.
"Xbox, Back. Xbox, Video Apps."
I see YouTube!
"Xbox, YouTube!"
Wait, no, YouTube is on the second page, so though I can see it the thing isn't giving it as an option.

Which is ok. In the end, every video I watched on the Xbox had an ad in the corner. You hit B to get rid of it, and since you hit B for everything my thumb was literally on the B button, making it easy to get rid of, but the PS3 does not have these ads and, frankly, c'mon.

I'll only do YouTube on the PS3, in that case. But Amazon Prime is still via Xbox. The image quality is definitely higher for that program via Xbox than via PS3. Only thing I've noticed a big difference either way for.

Because smartphones? A console is probably the least intuitive way to order a pizza I can think of even with Kinect.

Also apparently you have to quit out of the game you're playing to use this app, rendering it pretty much useless.

C'mon, imagine throwing pepperoni on one side of a pizza with your own hands! Digitally/virtually!


Yeah, I got nothing.

Pizza and gaming: two great tastes that taste great together! Honestly, why didn't they do this five years ago?

Microsoft in general these days nin

Buy your Pizza Hut™ pizza through your Xbox 360, make sure you check us out on Bing™ through your Windows Phone™. To skip this ad, buy the AdSkip DLC pack from Xbox Live Platinum (subscription only $99.99 for a limited time!).
