On the heels of the news that the giant robot battle was incredibly lame comes the news that the whole thing was a sham! As Engadget reports, the "live" event was streamed live, but the actual event was edited down over days of filming with significant portions cut out of the broadcast. Among what wasn't seen by fans was hours of robot repairs, and things that would've bored a live viewing audience.
Furthermore, the revelation that the footage was edited means that the results themselves could have been scripted as well. That's definitely disappointing to hear for an event that was years in the making, but honestly, it all makes more sense the longer I think about it. Are you disappointed learning about this news?
