Not true. The amount of integration testing that goes into these things are phenominal. Even if the code is written it needs to be integrated within the new camera/body/software which mean more and more testing. Testing isn't cheap especially if it requires testing on such specialised product line.

Focus on what you have, not on what you don't.

And it costs them new sales. People that are willing to upgrade for THAT feature, but have no other reason to buy the new camera.

That's money in THEIR pocket, they aren't a charity.  And they are pretty consistent in not revising old camera firmware with new features.
