In market the prices are kept low with concurrence, if there aren't concurrent products (we know that any config of amd card wouldn't do as well as 2 titans, ok 4xhd7970 but you run in compatibility problems) builders have a reason to go down with the price only if they produce more than what they sell (it isn't the case for titan, wasn't for 690 and for 680).
If we know these mechanism, and think nvidia will more likely instead of throwing on the market too many gtx 780 build a 770 a 760,750, 740 to produce on their industries, going to hurt amd in a range where it is still powerful in sales.
This means the price will stay high, titan about 100-150 cheaper than now but not much less.
This is also due to the fact that they have a limited production capability for 28mm chips, and are quite expensive.
Nvidia announced that in a few year they are gonna open a new estabilishment to produce at 28mm, to produce much more units at a lower price.
When this will happen prices will drop when sales decrease but it will happen sooner than nowadays because of higher production. Or prices will for sure drop when amd comes in with cards at the same level.
This is the theory I learned about economics and microeconomy applied to the market of gpu for gaming.
I alao think in 5 years we will have displays with retina, so for a 27" screen a resolution of about 5000x2600. This means that we will need much more powerful cards than now, 5 times the titans, and we will be at the beginning again. Have to pay lots of cash to have a good surround setup.
This will happen until the home gaming rig with surround isn't popular in 1 every 20 households. And we know nvidia has not a vision like that. And also amd. It's more apple to be able to innovate, and I don't think they are going in this direction.
