Oh, by the way, "pSX" is also the name of PlayStation emulator for Windows and Linux. Still following?

Perhaps more impressively, the PSX also included video, image, and audio editing software. This was accessible from the console's menu: the XMB. That's right, the XrossMediaBar that you know and love from the PSP and PS3 was used first on the PSX. Pretty neato, right?
Even though the PSX is now discontinued, you can still find them used on Amazon.co.jp for between $100 and $300. And that's that. Now you all know that I was right to call the original PlayStation a PS1 all this time.
