Button X-Y letters in Nintendo consoles had always been wrong placed.

It had been that way since SNES but there is no excuse, Y should be in the Y axis and X in the X axis.

Next you're gonna complain how the Japanese always read wrong because they read right to left.

I'll just put this out there but the x-axis is not always horizontal and the y-axis is not always vertical. There are more coordinate systems out there than just the standard one you learn in elementary math.

As for the controller button layout...what difference would it make? The buttons would still be in the same place and most games these days allow you to customize button inputs.

If the actual buttons had been physically placed elsewhere then maybe...

I should be able to fly my plane up because I push up on the D-Pad. Aeronautics has it all wrong.

Yet, when X equals any number, it's a vertical line. When Y equals any number, it's a horizontal line. It works both ways for either placement based on your absurd reasoning.

Digital buttons do not have an X or Y axis. They are just buttons. Japan reads pages and some other things from right to left, which is why the A is right and the B is left. And why the X is right and the Y is left (however, they do read sentences from left to right. And they also read sentences from up to down).

The Xbox is an American product, so that's vice versa.

stop making excuses

B,A makes perfect sense as the "press A to jump" had been a classic since videogames are videogames, having these buttons in that order makes easier to press B while you press A and viceversa.

Now there is no real reason for inverted X and Y axis.
