What do the Triangle, Circle, X, and Square Symbols Mean on PlayStation?

Ever since the PS1 came out, PlayStation always had the triangle, circle, X, and square symbols/buttons. But what do they really mean?

    I also tried to derive meaning, here it goes :

    X stands for the letter S. You can write an ‘S’ by connecting the outer ends of each line in the letter ‘S’.
    O stands for the letter ‘O’.
    The square stands for the letter ‘N’. Just put a diagonal in a square and erase off its upper and lower sides.
    and the triangle stands for the letter ‘Y’. You invert the letter ‘Y’ and connect its edges to form a square.

    So as per my opinion, the symbols on the controller stand for the name of the company itself. SONY

    Cheers!

    It’s Cross not X!

    the circle is red because it means Nooo and yeah the x is blue because it means Yes, so yeah that’s cool. What …the …f…did I just watched? Someone who finds the symbols cool? I find them cool too.

    Technically, the "X" button on the PlayStation is called "Cross", but either name is acceptable.

    Although my other question is why did xbox fucked up the order of A B X and Y instead making it more identical to Nintendo’s order it’s not like Nintendo copy righted the order and position of A B X Y

    spllitz you want know why COD DLC comes out first then Xbox PS4 is call of duty and Xbox is halo and battlefield

  22. Charly L on December 31, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    When you glide and it gives you an option to skydive
    Xbox = A to Skydive

    PS4 = X to Skydive

    So A on Xbox is like X on ps4
    B is Circle
    X is Square
    Y is Triangle

    you bitch don"t call xbox trash

  26. eagle219406 on December 31, 2020 at 11:17 pm

    The letters on other contollers have meaning as well. "A" is the selection button. If you are in a menu fot items to use or combat sellections or perhaps dialog options, you "A" to input your decision. It’s also the jump button if the game allows that. "B" is the cancel button or take me back button, "b" for "back". It gets you out of menus without you having to make a decision. Or if you are hanging on a ladder or ledge, "B" will make them let go. If you are holding an object other than your weapon, it will make them drop it. "Y" activates gadgets like a rope to swing or climb on. And finally "X" is the combat button for anything other than shooting. If you want the character to punch or swing a sword, that’s the button you press.

  29. Frezzy on December 31, 2020 at 11:21 pm

    But then why are there no colours on psp

  30. ShadowChild on December 31, 2020 at 11:21 pm

    since when the green is on the top of a traffic light? Also I dont think that the circle means no for PlayStation, in both PS and PS2 the "back" or "exit" button was the triangle.

  31. Denise Williams on December 31, 2020 at 11:22 pm

    Abxy is the same as triangle circle square X

  32. JDaTopo on December 31, 2020 at 11:22 pm

    The X and O descriptions in this video are actually inaccurate. The colors don’t have any real significance, it’s really just the shapes. O was meant to accept/Yes and X is supposed to Decline/No. The reason for this is pretty self explanatory. X means no in many cases so it would make sense. Sony originally intended that significance for that exact purpose. But instead, game developers started incorporating the shapes the other way around.

    the triangle is for the illuminati

  34. Sub2Cainan on December 31, 2020 at 11:26 pm

    I always thought it was
    X = X
    [] = box
    ⊙ = 360°

  35. mike gossner on December 31, 2020 at 11:27 pm

    When there is symbols in caves so are there also the PS controller

  36. Warren G on December 31, 2020 at 11:27 pm

  42. Cthight on December 31, 2020 at 11:31 pm

    The X stands for Crossplay. No just kidding. I thought they just have favorite geometry signs like a box, a triangle and a circle the X is a placeholder because no one had any ideas.

  43. Pug King on December 31, 2020 at 11:32 pm
