It would have made a difference. A lot less people would've bought an Amiga had it been sold as a cartridge only machine. When it comes to piracy though cartridges would not have made any difference since they can be cracked just like "normal" disks too. Where there's a will there's a way. Look at the C64GS (sold in Germany only if memory serves me right) which was a "castrated" C64 with cartridge port only. It failed miserably for obvious reasons.
