We've sure come a long way from playing Pong and other primitive games on the Atari 2600, haven't we? Not only are graphics and the level of immersion leaps and bounds ahead of those primitive times, but unlike back then, today's consoles are home entertainment hubs that offer so much more than just gaming. Heck, you can even order a pizza on your Xbox 360 console!

It's true, and it's ultra convenient thanks to Pizza Hut's "first-of-a-kind order app." If you're an Xbox Live subscriber living in the U.S., you can link to your Pizza Hut account and order pizza, wings, pasta, and other grub all from your Xbox 360 dashboard.

Pizza Hut

"The full menu, including new products, can be ordered from the Xbox Live dashboard and operated using an Xbox 360 controller or hand gestures and voices commands via Kinect for Xbox 360," Microsoft explains on its Major Nelson blog.

To kick things off, users who download and place an order through the Pizza Hut app by May 6 will receive 15 percent off their order. You're also eligible for local deals, as offers in your local area will pop up on the home screen, Microsoft says.

That is pretty cool, might have to see about pizza tonight if you get an extra 15% knocked off for using an xbox.

Pizza Hut pizza doesn't so much have greasy crust as they have crusty grease.

True but stuffed crust pizza is still good.

First app yes but Everquest 2 had a command /pizza that would launch (at least initially) a web browser to allow you to order a pizza so you didn't have to leave the game. I believe it ultimately failed because they couldn't get the web browser to work in game cleanly enough. From Wiki

In February 2005, EverQuest II began allowing players to place an order for pizza delivery from within the game, with a simple and easy command typed into the chat bar, "/pizza".[2] This promotion has since ended, but generated significant press for the game.

Hey guys

I'm a newbie here so hopefully I can create some entertaining input here. Hopefully I can contribute to the forum because its a pretty cool crowd here, people provide some pretty cool things. I think that stuffed crust pizza is the best and remains the best so far, until they invent something new, probably soon. I agree with  @ajm531  as its just becoming a sheer lazy world ....infact its coming to the point that its so easy to order from your xbox or phone etc etc you shouldn't eat a pizza because you haven't burnt enough calories in attaining the pizza. As we are talking pizza, you might find this interesting, hopefully its a good contribution to the forum and for you all as its a pizza font that you might find handy... http://www.fontsaddict.com/font/pizzadudefatoutline.html

Pretty funky hey. Hope you like Big Smile
