If you are a Playstation gamer, owner, even a friend of an owner, or have ever just seen their damn controller, it is most likely that you have referred to the southernmost non-D-pad button to be the X button.
Anyway, according to the official Playstation United Kingdom Twitter account, then you are a fool for doing this because the correct adjective for the blue icon is actually the “cross” button.
Although it is worth noting that most British people also put random u’s in their words and possess their own personal way of pronouncing the letters Z and H, so assume that it might just be something they do there.
In either context, as long as the person you are screaming at in the middle of a Madden game or deathmatch or whatever understands what it is, it is unsure to radically make a difference in your life.
While this is not expected to change the vocabulary of any of the gamers at this time, one person came up in the mentions to try to protect our ignorance with an exceptionally nerdy tweet.
Crosses hold the same distance between each of the sticks. Crosses also form a square. They also explained that exes do not have the same distance between each of the sticks. Exes also form a rectangle which is basic geometry.
One more user pointed out that the correct adjective may indeed be “fork,” which is based upon the text that appears to be imprinted on a controller after it has had its shell ripped off. You can check this fact yourself, though it is much less expensive to just have their word for it.
While all this originally started by a tweet from Playstation U.K., the main account of console got in on the conflict that no one is talking about by giving a poll questioning people what exactly they call the button.
