halo pizza -

Ever fancied a pizza whilst gunning down your mates on Call of Duty? Well know you needn't leave the comfort of Xbox LIVE, thanks to the newly launched Pizza Hut Xbox 360 app.

Available now in the US, accessing the app brings the world of pizza creation to your TV screen. Users can build the pizza of their choice using a controller or if you're that way inclined do the whole thing using Kinect.

The Pizza Hut app is the first of its kind for Xbox 360, facilitating the purchase and delivery of real world goods.

"We're always looking at ways to give our audience more of what they're interested in," Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson told Polygon.

"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."

Those in the US can enjoy a 15 per cent discount during the app's two week launch period.

There's no word on the application coming to the UK.

I'm a lover of Hawaiian, but the pineapple is often loathed by fellow pizza eaters. What's your topping of choice?

Hell Pizza in NZ have the most amazing sides and salads. Fried prawn fingers, corn nuggets, desert pizzas, and even lamb shanks. Not to mention Mis-fortunate cookies that tells you crap like "you peaked in high school and it's all downhill from there..."

God I haven't had pizza in a while. Tempted to order some right now. So very, very tempted.

Apparently, Brits have their own special versions of Hell in Fulham, Clapham and Shepherd's Bush...

I've always preferred Hell when it comes to pizza...

I can see all the people using Kinect to put their order together getting lots of wrong toppings...

Make it with quorn pieces, and I'd be there also!

Thinking about it, I'm fairy sure that satay sauce and accompanuing ingredients could make for a REALLY nice pizza...!

Yeah EQ took it one step further and allowed you to order pizza from WITHIN the game itself lol. This xbox app is less useful because you have to stop whatever you're doing to use it. As long as the next xbox allows you to suspend games/apps in a kind of 'alt + tab' manner then it should be better.

Personally I love hawaiian but I tend to add ground/spicy beef and peperoni to my tipple where possible :) I'm also a fan of the <insert whatever name matches toppings>: Ham, mushroom, peppers, onions and chicken.

I've always been rather boring and prefered margherita pizza. I could see the use of this if you have a few friends round and you're playing a game. Then again, couldn't just use a phone? You're going to have to pause the game either way.

I can just see the Daily Mail's headlines now, 'Fat Kids Get Fatter Whilst Becoming Future Axe Murderers.'

Ahhh reminds me of the classic Everquest days...

Anyways I'm a fan of cranberry chicken with brie, but lately I've been enjoying the good old "supreme". One of the shops in NZ used to sell this mexican pizza with mexican beans, chilli beef, salsa, and cornchips - can't get that anymore sadly.
