I don't have any plans to buy any games immediately soon. I am hoping to pick up several titles towards the end of this year when I do my over haul of my rig. Crysis 2 will be one of them. Should be considerably cheaper (on sale) and it'll have at least this patch by then. Think I'll be far happier waiting and purchasing the fully patched game for less than I would if I bought it on launch.
Good news though- this patch.
