Hi there, I'm going to start Uni this year, but I want to buy a ps5, or maybe a ps4. my mom says that it's a waste of time, do you people think so too, or is it fine to buy it.

i think it would depend on your work load and how easily distracted you are. if your course allows for a reasonable amount of free time i see no problem with it as long as you don't let it keep you up all night if you have class early the next morning etc. it can be a nice way to reward yourself to keep you motivated plus you can watch tv and stuff off them so why not if you just wanna watch a movie sometimes too! if you think you'll spend more time on the console than studying it probably might be best not to take one with you though!

Unless you’re going oxbridge first year won’t be THAT bad. I’m thinking about getting a ps5 once I get to uni too but I’d have to juggle gym and a job along with uni. It isn’t a bad thing as long as you play with other people you go lectures and **** with and make friends.

And tbh if you’re not running a kdr above a 1.4 just leave the console at home😭😭😭

Lmao same. I keep thinking to myself that I'll be able to manage myself with both studying working and working out and that I'll have time to play, but I have trouble getting myself to do google classroom work.

If it's only uni, then you're good. If you've also got a job, I would think again although it would still probably be fine in 1st year.
