We know that the only thing that can tear you away from an eight-hour gaming session with Call of Duty is the call of your rumbling stomach. And it's just a drain on the ole' leg muscles to get up and search for your cell in order to phone in your pizza order.

Well, Microsoft and Pizza Hut have heard your cries for help with the launch of the new Pizza Hut app for XBox 360.

All you have to do is click on the Pizza Hut icon on your XBox (after setting up an account on Pizza Hut's website). The app will allow you to order anything off the menu -- even customizing your order with whatever toppings you like.

Best of all? If you have Kinect, you can order your pizza with just your voice and the wave of your hand. Only problem, of course, is the fact that you still have to get your lazy ass up off the couch when the delivery guy gets to your door -- until Microsoft makes virtual servant chipmunks to do that for you, too!

The app went live yesterday and from now until May 6, you'll get a 15% discount off your order when you use your XBox 360 for your pizza order.

Here's XBox Live's Major Nelson, Larry Hryb to explain to you how it works (we love when he yells at the TV to supersize him):

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
