That's not the way it works man.  What happens usually is this:

1) Technology costs $x.
2) Technology gets discontinued.
3) $suit(s) decide that they need to re-coup cost of technology.
4) $suits order prices held high to keep up profit on those
5) Eventually $suits get replaced or people stop buying and the price
goes down.

Or at least that's what I see happening in the industry.
