Finally: Order Pizza Right From Your XBox

on Tuesday, Apr. 23rd

Polygon's Alexa Ray Corriea brings us word that the holy grail of gaming has been achieved.

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.

Gamers will be able to use the 360's Kinect if they wish. Meaning that you can now shout and wave at the TV and it will magically send you food. These orders can then be shared via Facebook, naturally.

No word on if they've found a way to turn the optical disc drive into a soda fountain/keg.

Corriea is the host of Polygon's daily news wrap up video show Speed Run. I can't wait to see how she tackles this news in today's episode.
