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...

As well as X11, X Windows, XFree86 or Linux, but not X as in XXX.

I still havent played GTA3. So far anything I've played on PS2 has been dissapointing.

GTA 3 is good...but I have it on computer, no reason to pay $200 dollars for a PS2 so I can play one game

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.
