I'm confused... so there is a re-release AND a patch?? Can I just get the patch and be done with it since I already invested in the title or is there reason to wait and get the re-release?
The patch is enough, that re-release probably won't come to the USA anyway.
Mind, this is assuming you have a PS3 copy. If you have a 360 copy you'll need to get the PS3 one and get that patched up.
