Also, loads of companies pull videos and streams but it largely depends on the size of the title. DICE pull leaked youtube videos, as an example. Rockstar aren't unique in trying to launch a title without people stealing their thunder. Marketing takes time and costs a fuck-ton, having those plans ruined by people leaking footage is a problem.
And the argument put forth earlier in this thread that retailers have to work harder to ensure deliver for a set release date... Well, yes. But that's the fucking job of the retailer!
