It's all good. The written medium utterly sucks at conveying intentions unless expressively written out. Hence why I wanted to clarify.It was more of a general statement and not directed at anyone in particular. I didn't intend for it to come off hostile in any way either.
I was always under the impression that next gen was a separate thing, like it wasn't a patch or anything like that.
Let me clarify, when I said bundled I meant bundled as in released at the same time. Definitely not the best way to express what I meant. I'm also assuming that the changes in 1.5 are necessary for the next-gen patch/additions to work.
There is also the possibility that the next-gen patch is going to disappoint at lot of people by simply being a set of video settings/features only available on next-gen hardware (like say, ray-tracing), whatever that would mean for PC. Personally, I'm leaning a lot towards this being the next-gen patch. A patch allowing the game to make use of new console hardware capabilities... possibly improving a few things on PC, yet nothing incredible.
I see a lot of people placing a lot, if not all, of their faith in the next-gen patch while no one has any specific on what it entails. I personally think people should seriously temper their expectations of it.
Of course, like everyone else here besides REDs, I'm merely speculating.
