PlayStation 5 will Use the X Button to Confirm by Default for all Regions

The developers have decided that in the new PS5, instead of 0 (Circle), the X button will be the default selection button. Western players are not surprised though because in those parts of the world the X button is the default selection button since PS1. The news is coming after many Japanese media PS5 previews that deal with new games, hardware, controllers, and many more.

This is quite a big change, especially in Japan, because the symbol of Circle is used to show that something is good, okay, or correct. We should not disregard the muscle memory, which will be hard to repress. There is a saying circulating that this decision that Sony made was greatly influenced by the look of the SNES control.

This look will be standardized across all regions as of 2020, which is for some great, and for some not. However, a preview of Famitsu has posted the info that the Japanese games will allow the players to use the old setting (Circle button for confirmation), even if the system is using the X button. Maybe the players can change this in the system settings, but Sony hasn’t officially announced yet.
