Sure. But the context of the buttons does not obviously call for cross.
a) the symbol it is meant to invoke is called either a cross or an ex among further names
b) it is used (in design) in tandem with a confirm symbol not in use in the western world
c) it isn't even used (in most games in western releases) in a way consistent with that symbolism in any case
And then the "shapes" context is also imperfect:
Crossing lines aren't a shape. They encompass no area. You can't have a shape bound by two lines in Euclidean geometry.
It doesn't "fit" the circle, triangle, square paradigm cleanly as a cross.
And then the context of video game controllers says to a lot of people:
So unless you see it as the cross mark/x mark and call that thing cross, which people do, context tends to speak to x just fine. And even if you see it as that mark, people can and do call that mark x.
A cross is a horizontal and vertical line, normally.
When you tell someone to draw a cross + is what they should be thinking.
When you tilt that 45 degrees, its an ex.
When you search video game titles with the word CROSS in their title, a majority of them will have + instead of x because x is EX.
Please don't mix things people!! It confuses the hell out of communication!!!@#$
Ecks marks the spot
X as in the letter.
Ecks since the first ones to use it (Nintendo) where letter based (ABXY)
What the hell is "ecks"?
Just say ex, and yes I call it ex.
Ecks, only heard it called cross once in my lifetime...well now twice.
Ecks. I had never heard of "X" being said as "Cross" until Project X Zone.
It's cross in Japan afaik but I wonder if it's different anywhere else as well.
en_US: Ecks circle square triangle; dee-pad, left stick, right stick; start, select.
es_ES: Equis círculo cuadrado triángulo; cruceta, stick derecho, stick izquierdo; start, select.
Up up down down left right left right bee a start.
Arriba arriba abajo abajo izquierda derecha izquierda derecha bé ah start.
╳ = Χι
⃝ = Κύκλος or Όμικρον
△ = Τρίγωνο or Δέλτα
⃤ = Τετράγωνο
It is a circle, not an o.No it's an even distribution of shapes and letters. Square and triangle. X and O.
