Okay, in most of the release titles I've played if I really pay attention on maps with alot of detail, I notice a small level of "appearing" objects and characters just outside the view of the player. They just sorta pop into existance as you approach (and are usually always rendered after you notice the more complex models) I notice it most in excite truck, zelda, farcry, etc. Not griping, just a casual question. I'm new to console gaming, but I've been hanging out on the PC since my old NES packed up in the early 90's so I'm no stranger to this phenomenon, it just seems unpolished. Will this be the norm, or should I chock most of it up to these being relatively early and unprecedented releases?
