So far, the PS3 has lost Emotion Engine, 40GBs (down from 80GB), SACD...anything else I'm missing?
I guess the next gen PS3 will lose Blu-ray playback as well.
You're right about that. Even taking out the SACD chip, it saves Sony a few bucks. Since Sony doesn't sell any new SACD titles any longer, I guess it didn't make financial sense to keep putting the feature in there.
I really think Sony's motivation is to move the PS3 to a more pay-for-content platform anyways. Downloading movies, games, etc to the hard drive for a fee.
