Anyone familiar with  PlayStation will be aware of the well-thumbed “X” button on the controller, but in a revelation almost as big as the GIF/”Jiff” fiasco, it’s now been revealed that we’ve all been calling it the wrong thing this whole time.

Sony took to Twitter to announce the “correct” pronunciation, posting a poll to its 17 million followers asking them what they call the button before correcting them all. Clearly, the vast majority of gamers went with X [“eks”]. In actual fact, we should have been saying “cross” this whole time.

Just to be clear, that means the pad has Triangle, Circle, Cross and Square… we’re not sold.
