The really problematic one, by my understanding, is .iso - my understanding is that you'll probably be fine with .img.Arse.. iv'e nearly done all mine as .img (and i have a lot) wish i had read the other posts, before i got a bit carried away.
Anyone know of a user friendly Windows utility to convert to bin/cue (pref freeware)
All of the devs I ever knew referred to it as "PSX", as did all the press, and just about everyone. I may be misremembering, but I'm guessing that all the devs did it because the dev-equipment probably referred to the machine that way.Why do people still refer to the PS1 as the PSX? There was actually a PSX console, it was a PS2 with DVR capabilities. Even the wiki says about PS1 being called PSX is 'unofficial' and I think that should be extended into 'incorrectly'. I don't think any official Sony source ever called the PS1 a PSX and then on top of that Sony made a console named PSX so even if they did call PS1 a PSX then that should officially change.
I do notice a lot of sites, mainly emulation and rom sites, have changed PSX to PS1 because of this 'new' knowledge but occasionally I still see people say PSX when they mean PS1. I had this explained to me once and accepted it but for the life of me I can't remember why it was. . .
EDIT: Oh, it was the PS1's codename, PS-X for PS-Experimental, so it is like saying how you love your Revolution-mote over the other too competitor's controllers :blink:
I see no reason to stop calling it what everyone always called it just because Sony decided to do a cynical retcon to try to take advantage of the fact that everyone used the term "PSX", in the likely hope that people would get confused and think that the people using that term meant their flopped PS2-DVR machine - I always find it odd how many people instantly started using "PS1" as soon as Sony stopped using "PSX".
