Bigger chips would mean a bigger lens, so you're into a new camera body to start with...
You're looking at a completely different camera.

yea it would probably cost more to upgrade the thing than buy say a Sony DSR-450WSP. And for people who dont know what this camera is, its a 2/3 inch broadcast camera.
