Ever since the original Sony PlayStation was first released back in 1995 (1994 if you were in Japan), I’ve called the
Cross X button X. I’ve never thought twice about it, until now…
24 years of calling the Cross button X. I must also admit, I also call the Circle button O. I feel betrayed, like I’ve been living a lie. What’s next? Santa Claus isn’t real? The Easter Bunny doesn’t exist? Or it actually is butter?
Sure, it does seem a little odd that Sony would design
2 3 buttons with shapes and then 1 with a letter… BUT, that’s not the point, it’s an X… isn’t it?
What do you call it? Obviously it’s an X and the official PlayStation UK Twitter account has been hacked, but surely there’s some
clueless people who call it a Cross?
