Though the PlayStation magazine drops the demo disc last year, Ben Wilson (ex editor of Official PlayStation Magazine) disagrees on phasing out the disc drive support. Disc drives are becoming less necessary because of Steam on PC.
As to possible release date of Sony PlayStation 5, pundits say that it wil lbe 2020 based on the previous consoles' release interval. PS1 was released twenty years ago followed by PS2 after five years and three months. PS3 was released six years and eight months after PS2 followed by the latest PS4 with seven years gap.

However, there are some rumors which suggest that PS5 will be one of the the cheapest consoles ever. PlayStation 5 is still uncertain at the moment but probably the next Sony PlayStation is a blast. The future of gaming lays entirely in software, services and super-fast internet connections.
