@alba_gu_brath0, while there might be a sale price if and when TS5 is released, it wouldn't be dependent on whether you owned a previous version of The Sims or not. I've had TS1, TS2, TS3, and TS4, but did not get any discounts for owning the previous versions. But there are often other kinds of sales on The Sims, so keep an eye out!
However, there is no guarantee that there will even be a Sims 5! Even if there will be, it won't be for a while since it has been stated that they are stretching out the run of TS4 (compared to the older versions' runs). So, if there is a TS5, it probably wouldn't be for a few more years.
I loved the Sims Medieval, but I don't have it on my current computer! The world was more open than TS4 is ,but not as large as TS3, so Sims Medieval didn't have all the problems that TS3 had! TS3 lagged so much (at best) and was unplayable for many people (at worst) especially after all the Expansion Packs were added.
I think viewing a "Let's Play" is a good idea to see if you want the game. Also the developers usually have a Livestream before EPs, GPs, and SPs are released, so they would more than likely have one if they ever release a TS5!
I buy every EP, GP, and SP and have enjoyed them all! (I'm not materialistic, unless when it comes to my Sims! )
I don't think they're gonna have a sims 5 for a while. And if I'm being honest, I don't want a Sims 5. I hope they'll create a way to combine the sims 2, sims 3, and sims 4 all together instead of having a sims 5

moved your post to the Sims forum.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
I suspect eventually there will be a Sims 5, but it is still a ways down the pipeline, since they are not done developing Sims 4 yet.
Here's my wishlist for Sims 5:
VR option (but not required to play the game), both single-player and multiplayer options, open neighborhood but loading screen between worlds, ability for Sims to travel between worlds retained, ability to switch between CAS backgrounds without restarting the game, and if they must have loading screens like Sims 4, have more variety in the loading screens: Sims 1 had a taxi when loading the Hot Date neighborhood, a cruiseship when loading the Vacation neighborhood, a picture of a Sim or figure jumping in a hole or traveling by balloon for the Makin Magic Neighborhood, and so on. When visiting a neighbor, maybe a loading screen showing a door opening would be useful, when visiting a community lot, a view of a moving bus would be useful, and when visiting a vacation world, a loading screen showing a van ride/first-person view out the window of a van or third person view of a van rolling down the highway or a third person view of a moving plane/train would be useful. The spinning plumbob works for game startup. Also, CARS, TODDLERS, COLOR WHEEL, POOLS, GHOSTS, FAMILY TREE, DISHWASHERS part of base game right from the start. Return of the TRASH COMPACTOR or a special counter that also functions as a trash can would be desirable.
