PSOnes aren't PSXs

Post by Jimmy » Sun Jul 30, 2006 1:55 pm

I've noticed a lot of people calling PSOnes PSXs. They aren't PSXs.

That's a PSX. I hate when people call PSOnes or PlayStations PSXs.

Yeah, I was about to post it there, but I thought that was just for mods and hacks.

EDIT:
Wikipedia wrote:PSX is also a popular nickname for the original PlayStation video games console. The "X" appears because Sony originally developed the PlayStation as a CD-ROM and SNES hybrid unit. When the project was halted by Nintendo, Sony decided to redesign the PlayStation as a stand alone console, which was known internally as the PlayStation Experimental.
Damnit. Nevermind, I guess it does refer to the PSone.

Somebody besides me knows that. :!: :?: :shock:

Yes the ps1 is not a psx. But calling a ps1 a psx started long before the ps2 even came out.

Really? That annoys you? Members of my family call my gamecube "the purple box", my slim PS2 "the toy" and my DS "that red thing". Oh, and every part, EVERY part of my 64SS while on the table being assembled, is "the wire".

Any every Nintendo console I have is a "Nintendo."

And my Nintendo is "That grey box..."

I didn't know that not many people knew that :? well anyway the PSX is like the Panasonic Q of the gamecube. It's a fancy dvd player and media center with a game console built in, and it was, just like the Q, a complete failure.

My sister calls the GameCube an NES sometimes.

Oh my crap... that's the worst thing I've ever heard... even my stepfather isn't that bad... wow. He calls my PS2, Gamecube and, well, pretty much every console I have either "The Nitendo," (no, not "Nin", he says "Ni") or sometimes "The computer." Any every once in a while he'll actually call my computer a "Nitendo." Ugh. On a side note, he also thinks that everything I do on the computer is "Playin' on the computer." Just because the only thing he knows how to do on the computer is play Solitaire doesn't mean that's all it does... :roll:

My dad is pretty good about it, but my mom: She calls every single video game system "Gameboy".
