As soon as 64bit becomes mandatory, then games/programs can be written in 64bit from the ground up, which will open up new possibilities in performance and quality.
You do realize that not eveyone has 4Gb of ram(or even needs it), 64bit OS's gives you a performance loss on low memory. In fact Windows 7 minimum requirements of the CPU's wouldn't be 64bit anyway.
