A random thought that was floating around in my head. “You picked the right forum for that, Eddie.” Thanks.

Why is the original Playstation referred to in shorthand as “PSX”? Where does the X come from?

I think the full name is/was the PlayStation-X, but the X got dropped off somewhere along the line and only hangs around in the abbreviated PSX form. I'm not sure exactly where the "-X" stopped being used, but it might have been during the time when the system went from being the intended Super Nintendo CD-Rom add-on it was planned as to the stand-alone machine it eventually turned into.

...Wow.

Glad I asked. Thanks, bro. I knew the Playstation was originally designed to be the SNES CD-Rom drive that never materialized, but I didn't know that much about its history.

Much obliged. The plate of cookies is in the mail! LOL...

Well, for Wing Bowl, you need to qualify by performing an eating stunt (eating a certain amt. of food in a certain amt. of time). Basically how that works, is you have to call WIP, propose a stunt, and have it approved.
