No, the price never "went down", nor will 7's in all likelyhood.
However, there are a number of different ways to get full versions of what you want for reduced prices. These include:
1) Technet ($349, but includes a lot of other stuff and there are discounts available from several places)
2) OEM Copies. We don't know what OEM pricing on 7 will be, but basing it on Vista then you should be able to get a full OEM copy of 7 Ultimat for about $189 from places like NewEgg.
3) Action Pak ($400, but gives you 10 licenses + other stuff)
4) Student Discounts. If you're a student (or know someone who is), you will be able to get it at a reduced price via your school.
