Hungry? Pizza Hut is Coming to an Xbox Near You

Pizza Hut on Xbox

In a move sure to please many a hungry gamer, Xbox and Pizza Hut have announced a new, freely available app for the Xbox 360. This first of its kind new app will be available later today (Wednesday), and provides full menu access and online ordering, right from the convenience of your own couch. Leveraging Kinect for hand gestures and voice command, the pizza hut app aims to make the ordering process easy and fun for its users. Upon first time setup, users will be prompted to create or sign into an existing Pizza Hut online account. Once created, it will list the nearest Pizza Hut restaurants from the user, and based on the location selected, will generate the appropriate menu. As menus are generated in real time, any local online specials/coupons that would normally be available via the PizzaHut.com website should also apply to the app as well.

For Pizza Hut, who has been offering online ordering nearly 20 years, the introduction of an Xbox 360 app seemed like a natural progression. In addition to ordering capabilities, the Pizza Hut app also offers the ability to share selected menu choices with facebook friends. Would be Pizza Hut buyers, take note: between now and May 6, your first purchase on the Pizza Hut app is 15% off.

Is this the ultimate convenience? Do we, as individuals need a Pizza Hut app on our Xbox? Could this be the start of more "convenience" based apps? Sound off in the comment section below!
