There are two types of people in this world – those who call the lower button of DualShock "Ex" and those who call it "Cross".
If, like me, you've always seen yourself on the right side of the story with the word "Ex" – and why wouldn't you, right? – It turns out PlayStation wants a word with you. You're wrong. I'm not right. We are all wrong. It turns out that is after all called the "Cross."
Debate regularly carries its ugly, cruciform head on social media, of course, but this is the first time anyone with power  weighs on the subject. We are obviously fed up with all the wrong ones ̵
"Triangle. Circle. Cross. Square", "PlayStation United Kingdom insists via Twitter (thanks, Eurogamer )." If the cross is called X (not), then what do you call a circle? 19659006] TriangleCircleCrossSquareIf the cross is called X (not), then what do you call a circle? 🤔 https://t.co/dvQ19duemW September 5, 2019
While most commentators were astonished, still reeling from the shock presumably, Cross fans tried to explain where we went wrong. "
" Crosses have the same distance between each rod. Crosses form a square, "said one commenter." Exes do not have the same distance between each rod. Exes form a rectangle. Basic geometry. "
As this debate grinds my gears, I will finish it once and for all: – Crosses have the same distance between each rod. – Crosses form a square. – Exes do not have the same distance between each rod. – Exes form a rectangle.

And then there's the horrifying suggestion that it's technically called the "Fork" button …?
