    I can’t get the pizza hut app to order the pizza. It says no location Id found

    • http://www.facebook.com/robert.muller Robert Muller

      Same here bro. Weak.

    • Xhawk27

      Do you have a pizza hut in your area?

    • ThisNameIsBogusJustLikeMyEmail

      I was having the same issue. I fixed it by changing my order from Delivery to In-Store Pickup, selecting a store, and then after it changes that switch back to Delivery.

      same here.

    • http://twitter.com/HGamer Hardcore_gamer

      Pretty pointless if you ask me ., somebody already reviewed the app and encountered the same thing ” No Location No Id found ” at the end nobody even had a answer for him ( for the errors he was getting )

    Pizza Hut app that’s a bit lazy don’t you think?

  • Rohan Mayers

    Thanks. But I think we all want the Skype app. Thats what we are waiting for.

  • Sean

    This is literally so ridiculous.

    I must try it!!!

  • ElektroDragon

    I want a Papa John’s app! I know all you MS folks love Papa John’s over in Redmond. Make it happen!

  • http://ordinarygamer.co.uk/ Dan Etheridge

    I want an app so I can order from my local Chinese takeaway.

  • GMAN73

    Is it not quicker to pick up the phone instead of using a laggy pile of garbage

    • Xhawk27

      But not as fun though. lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1609179464 Abraham Wilson

    did you know that other countries have pizza hut as well

  • http://twitter.com/cdraff Chris Raff

    That is not the fault of MS or Xbox, but rather the fault of the providers in your area. Do you really think that MS does not want to make money off of you? If they were able to provide you with the service they would. Instead of complaining to MS complain to the provider.

  • Adinnieken

    Major – Please don’t let it take 4 more years for the ability to order Jimmy Johns from Xbox LIVE. A Freak Fast, Freak Good app would be much appreciated!

    And as a European, I ask ask you: Do you really care?

    This is a nice publicity stunt, but let’s be honest: Would you quit your current game and launch this app to order pizza, then start your game again, with a phone/tablet lying next to you?

    Wait for next-gen for this sort of stuff, and let’s hope some of those windows 8 app rumours are true.

  • Guest

    The CW App is like the VUDU App where if you’re using a regular [old fashioned] TV set with Widescreen it’ll lock up your Console and the only way to get rid of the screen is by unplugging it. Please fix it! It’s Annoying!!

  • Viby Slim

    Why are these app´s not in Europe/Scandinavia ??? we need all these app´s too , damn region

  • GMAN73

    The idiots at the Xbox division getting their priorities wrong again, hey lets focus on more stupid useless apps instead of games. Idiots.

  • GMAN73

    Larry just resign from Xbox please, you, Don and Kudo have ruined the Xbox brand,

  • GMAN73

    Really pathetic that you need to be Gold to order a pizza, this would not happen with PS3 why because Sony would not have a stupid dumb app like this in the 1st place.

  • consolesblow

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!! i can order pizza now. Xbox is the sh*t. i cant wait to see what new apps come out when Infinity does.
