There other case where game publisher using the 'copyright infringement' to take down unfavorable/negative reviews, like what happened to TotalBiscuit and others.

Such reviews usually made the viewers canceling their plan to buy the reviewed games.

 

 

Initially, YouTube DID favoring the Game Publisher and remove the gameplay reviews,

if not for TotalBiscuit protesting and exercising his public opinion powers, his removed reviews might never see the light on youtube again.

pure speculation, but perhaps there are major issues,and they don't want to risk having a large amount of pre orders cancelled, thus having the pre launch reviews done in a controlled environment. after launch, announce that some users are having issues, then promise to work on patches.

I'm kinda thinking something is not exactly right here as well, maybe I am just cautious after the terrible launch that Sony had last time, but all this hubbub hasn't got me in the highest hopes. That Marcus Beer fellow,
@AnnoyedGamer,  has some interesting tweets related to the situation and considering Microsoft seems to have been ruled out, it has to be a Sony only deal.

Hmmmm so it might not be a YouTube thing after all? It's Sony trying to be a bully?

I don't really wish that Sony has issues so close to launch, but it would be amusing given all the flak Microsoft has taken, some of it straight from Sony.

Adam Sessler and a bunch of other reviewers are crying because they won't get free PS4's or review copies of 1st party titles.

No, they are probably upset because Sony is holding everything back PS4s for review until right before the launch, which for better or worse is kinda jacked as they are banking (hehe) on getting all the sweet pre-order loot. As for game reviews... rightfully so they should all be upset. This is a business, and reviews are important in this age of social media (that Sony is riding).

 

Is there issues? Shrug. Is it lame that they are holding review till right before launch... yup. It may mean the console isn't ready for prime time, like the xbox one. Both are rushing hardware and games to market to boost profits this season.

 

Who loses? Every consumer.

Well, Youtube does own their own site, so they can do what they want, let these other "companies" pay for their own video hosting/bandwidth.

Or they could just move to twitch.tv or some other more gamer-friendly video site.
