After 1 hour of playing (PS5) I can tell you guys.. Pop-in ( especially for npcs) is even worse than FF7R on PS4. Graphics mode feels like 37 fps. It's bad.
I'm so thankful these things have never bothered me. I'm glad I'm the type of gamer that can just sit down, immerse myself, enjoy the gameplay/story, and not look for graphical/performance flaws.
