GTA Trilogy Physical Release Delayed on PS4
GTA Trilogy — or Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition if you've all the time in the world — released digitally on PlayStation 5 and PS4 in mid-November. Obviously, the game has been on a rough ride since then, with bugs, graphical issues, and more dealing a heavy blow to its reputation. A physical version of the game on PS4 was due to release soon, but Rockstar has now put a slight delay on this.
Announcing it on Twitter, the publisher says the PS4 physical edition will now release on 17th December:

That's a delay of only 10 days, but it's worth noting in case anybody was looking to pick it up next week. You'll have to wait just a tad longer to get your boxed copy. No reasoning for the small push back has been offered, and is likely just a logistical issue.
There's the suggestion Rockstar wanted to put an improved version of the trilogy on discs, but the physical copies will have been in production for a while at this point.
