The Diversion

It’s a “Cross” and not an “X” button on a DualShock, says Sony

A great debate can now be put to rest, folks: the DualShock has a Cross button and not an X button, Sony has confirmed.

In the same vein, it’s not an O or a 0 button either — it’s a Circle.

“Triangle. Circle. Cross. Square,” PlayStation UK said in a tweet. “If Cross is called X (it’s not), then what are you calling Circle?”

The tweet’s obviously tongue-in-cheek and prompted a host of similarly hilarously responses from Twitter users around the world.

Even Xbox’s Graeme ‘AceyBongos’ Boyd got in on the fun.

Be honest now gamers: what do you call the button? Is it an X or is it a Cross?
