They have crippled the camera's video capabilities by not supporting 1080p60. This is said to be due to the camera's not being able to dissipate enough heat because of its small size, but my Sony RX100 manages this feat without any issues.

It is because the Sony's sensor size is only 1"

Can't be the whole story.  There are other larger sensor cameras that can do 1080p60 with no overheating problems.  Heck, Sony does three (RX1, A7, A7R) which all have sensors 4x as large and don't appear to have much space for cooling.

Perhaps additional cost for the processing engine vs. target market?
