Gamers Order Over $1 Million Worth of Pizza Via Xbox 360

xboxpizza

Back in April we reported on Pizza Hut’s Xbox 360 app that allows gamers to order pies from the convenience of their console. Through the app gamers have the ability to customize their pizza to their tastes and have the option for delivery or pick-up. Let’s be real, if customers are ordering pizzas through their Xboxes chances are 99.9 percent of them are getting delivery, picking up your order is for noobs.

Anywho, given that Pizza Hut basically made it easier for us to avoid being social it should come as no surprise that the pizza giant sold over $1 million worth of pizzas in the first four months of the app’s launch. New generations of gaming consoles hit the market back in November and although there’s still no sign of a Pizza Hut app on WiiU, Xbox One or PlayStation 4 Doug Terfehr, public relations director for Pizza Hut says “Conversations are still ongoing with us. Wherever you are, we want to be.” For now you’ll just have to deal with ordering through your phone… no not dialing an actual pizza place I mean using the app, sheesh.

Eat These Wii, Playstation and Xbox 360 Remote Cookies

cookies

For those of us who forget that magic code from the 1980s in a pinch (up, up, down, down, left… something else?), Etsy user peapodscookies is there to lend a hand. Or at least, a few extra thumbs.

Okay, fine. She won’t actually crawl in through your living room to help you defeat the boss, but she will offer up a quick sugar fix, available in three different consoles. Each of her five inch cookies are hand decorated to resemble a Wii remote, a Playstation remote, or one of those behemoths that comes with an Xbox 360.

The best part? No more pausing in the middle of a game to charge these bad boys. If they’re giving you problems (too adorable, perhaps?), we suggest you eat them ASAP.

Box of 1 dozen assorted cookies, $52 @Etsy

McDonald’s: Training Employees with Nintendo DS

McDonald’s is now turning toward a more progressive source of training for their fast food employees in Japan. The new program is called “eSmart” and after much development, Nintendo has recently announced that they will be releasing a software for their hand-held DS device, which will be used to train new McDonald’s employees. McDonald’s claims that this will cut training time in half, expediting employee’s into permit positions. This leaves questions open such as will the newly trained employee’s believe that they should cook french fries with the DS stylist (touch pen)? The employees may begin to believe that if the grill breaks you simply take the burner out, blow on it, put it back in and reset the grill? This now creates a whole new market for outsourcing “out-consoling” which in the new world market you will be training to become a police officer on you Xbox 360 account.
