Well, SEGA certainly tried their best to do that with the Genesis. God bless 'em. I confess I couldn't resist the 32X on account of Knuckles Chaotix, poor little thing.

And Nintendo did introduce the Famicom Disk Drive system in Japan when cartridge production got too expensive due to shortages (or so I understand), and it helped to have the added RAM of the expansion unit. Eventually, they just started improving the game carts making the Disk Drive enhancer unnecessary.

Most of those cartridge-based console had built-in expansion slots that were never used, so who knows?
