Streamer Cohh Carnage posted to Twitter that they had received their PS4 copy of Cyberpunk 2077 collectors edition from Best Buy. It is not uncommon for physical copies of games to ship early, largely due to the logistics of postal services. A Reddit thread has started where fans are showing off their physical media.

The wait for Cyberpunk 2077 has been long, and there have been numerous delays, but with mere days to wait, it would be a shame to spoil the surprise on December 10, hence why CD Projekt Red has taken the opportunity to ask streamers not to post videos or stream. In a fun, yet serious tweet the team behind Cyberpunk 2077 advise that anyone caught releasing videos before the deadline will receive a visit from MAX-TAC, an in-game group who hunt down lawbreakers. In reality, any videos will receive a takedown notice.
