The PS1 could stream textures. I've just proven it by opening the CD drive on the world map of FFVII, eventually the textures stop and you just see the sky bitmap. Probably works because FFVII used midi music, so the tiny music files were plonked into memory and the laser could be free to load textures on the fly.|
So Hyrule Field had nothing to do with cartridges vs CD.
