This would be disastrous for the gaming community. 99% of my Youtube usage is gaming related.
No Sony/Ms won't.
Ever heard of Machinima?
There are company, such as Machinima, out there that sign deals with the Copyright holder and video creators. So the video creators can made video about copyright material legally.

You better watch this video:
It explain how YouTube partnership and Copyright works. YouTube does not explicitly ask you to get permission. Since their ToS clearly say you can't upload Copyright material.
You should be glad Nexon didn't ask youtube to remove your video, or worst case sue you.Edited by Erio - 5/19/13 at 12:12pm
