So almost everything I will say has already been said but let's be clear it is confirmed the FF7 started development on the N64 but was jumped to Sony when the storage medium couldn't do what they wanted. CDs would also have made it much easier to get 3rd parties on to the system and with the systems stronger hardware could have lead to massive games on discs. Lets also factor in the 64 disk drive from Japan its possible many of those games would have just been released normally which could have given Americans game like Mother 3, animal crossing and F-zero X with a level editor. Would this have been enough to fend off Sony's head start? Maybe.
