I recall perfectly that it was FFVII who sold the PS1. FFVII sold PS1 like crazy in Japan, as soon as people knew it was coming to PS1. That's also when I decided to buy one. The rest is history, with most good RPG going to PS1, and PS2 followed. PS3 would have too, if it wasn't so expensive, especially given Sony's track record with reliability of their consoles.
