You have to go back to pre-launch days in which it was a working abbreviation used by Sony themselves afaik.

Yep, It was called the Play Station X when it was in development, and the abbreviation stuck even though they dropped the "X" well before its release.

Here is another guess:
Play Station X., as in Generation X, as in New.

When the Playstation was first in development, they used the abbreviation/codeword PSX that represented Play Station Xperimental.
I read this in Electronics Gaming Monthly a while ago...

X stands for "Piece of Crap", just like in Windows XP.

Exactly. Sadly, I have to pay about $200 for a video card that runs it smoothly. But oh well, its fine how it is now, especialy with the speed cheat.

Not really a kid. Not really an airbag. WHAT THE HELL IS IT?!? Who's asking? Are you French? An airbag is a safety device in a car that inflates during a collision and blocks you from smashing your head into the dashboard or steering wheel!
