No, PSX is also a smei-common acronym for the original PlayStation
Where does the "X" come from, then?

Originally the first model was just called "The playstation" but as time progressed there were alterante versions like the "PS-One" model which was samller and regesigned in 2000.

As time wore on the PS2 came to light giving rise to the original playstation being differentaited. You can't just say "playstation" anymore because of the PSOne and the PS2 so the term "PSX" was coined to describe the EARLY models of the original playsation as the term "Playsataion 1" has come to refer to both the PSX and PS-One as they are both the same system.

PS-X (PlayStation Experimental) was an internal code name for the PlayStation during development.
Best explanations I have seen to date.

I never really got that either.

I prefer just calling it Playstation or PS1.

The Sega was the first thing I remember watching my bro play when i was a kid. The memories of Sonic 3...

Then, well, I was introduced to Sony's PS1. Phenomenal memories, oh the days of playing Crash Bandicoot, Megaman Legends 1+2, Tomba, Megaman 8, etc...

Then... Nintendo stole my heart with the GameCube and Game Boy Advance.

Smash Bros. Melee, Sonic Adventure DX and Adventure 2: Battle, Sonic Mega Collection, Kirby Air Ride, Wind Waker... I could go on all day...
