The craziest military tech in games that's actually real

Plus more from Outside Xbox.

Salutations, Eurogamers. We're but a month away from E3 and marooned in the middle of a serious game release drought. Still, in amongst the news of game delays, there's been a new Call of Duty announced. One that promises Kevin Spacey and robot legs.

It's this 'Advanced Warfare' we're hearing about that got us thinking about the craziest near-future military technology in games actually being considered for real-life deployment. For that, plus the usual weekly sundries, here is Show of the Week.

If near-future isn't quite real enough for you, how about those moments when games took the fourth wall and kicked a size-nine-boot-shaped hole through it? It turns out this happens relatively frequently, considering it's designed to play with your feeling of immersion; here are the six most startling times when games broke reality.

Lastly, Capcom isn't done with Street Fighter 4 just yet, releasing a fourth version of the game. Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be available first as DLC in June for Super Street Fighter 4 and the Arcade Edition, and then in August as a budget boxed release. Discover what has actually been added, including new character Decapre, in this video.

That's it for another week, but for more gaming videos, including the seven things we don't want from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, make yourself comfortable at our YouTube channel. We won't even ask you to take your shoes off.
