Microsoft and Pizza Hut have partnered up to launch a pioneer app for Xbox Live that will allow users to order from the chain’s menu directly through their Xbox 360.
“We’re always looking at ways to give our audience more of what they’re interested in,” said Xbox Live director Larry Hyrb.
The Pizza Hut for Xbox app makes the chain’s entire menu accessible to users, who can then build their own customized pizzas and place orders via Kinect motion controls, voice commands or the controller. Users can link their Xbox and PizzaHut.com accounts and save their order settings to streamline future purchases, as well as view and take advantage of deals at local stores.
“If you look at our audience, they love pizza. I mean, who doesn’t? It has international appeal, and Pizza Hut is a recognised brand that matches up well with the Xbox brand”
The app will let users order from the chain’s full menu, including pizza, pasta, breadsticks and wings, and will feature Facebook integration. After submitting an order, users can share their choice with friends via Facebook.
Users who order through the app by May 6 will get 15% off their first purchase.
There you go gamers, no need to leave you couch for food also anymore! (apart from answering the door when the pizza arrives)
