Do you call the "X" button on Dualshocks the "Cross Button" or "Ecks Buttons"?

This button right here:



All my life I called it the Ecks button and always thought that made sense, but apparently some heathens call it the Cross button and that threw me off as it never made much sense to me to call it that. I guess it does fit in with the shapes theme that Sony always had (Triangle, Circle, Square) but I still call it the ecks button. What do you call it?

X button for me. The Xbox has one as well, the SNES had one, and in my mind a cross is the religious symbol, rather than.. well, X.

Do I call the X button X?

Yes.

But seriously, I've never heard anyone ever use cross.

Ecks. I had never heard of "X" being said as "Cross" until Project X Zone.
The ironic thing about the official pronouciation is that even though it's said cross like you mentioned...I still sometimes think of it as X because X the character is in the game, and featured on the cover of the game as well haha
