Well, I haven't seen the prices of the other Japanese cameras drop other than the Pentax MX-1 and it was only introduced over the past month or so.

For the Pentax, it just isn't selling that well. Have a wander over to the Pentax forum and see the lack of activity there, and the Ricoh as well.

On the other hand, I haven't seen the Canon, Nikon or Sony prices falling, and also if forum activity is correlated with camera sales, then the new DPs just aren't selling that well.

You have not looked very hard, have you?  As Seth already pointed out, there are loads of price drops across the industry.  Fujifilm dropped the price of their X Pro 1 as well as their recently released X-E1.  There are all kinds of special deals where you can get up to $600 off with lens purchases.

Prices drop all the time with cameras.  They start high and slowly go down with time.

How you are only seeing this now is inexplicable.
