The exact meaning of the "MSX" abbreviation is still debated today. At one time, it was thought to mean "MicroSoft eXtended", referring to the built-in "Microsoft eXtended BASIC" (MSX-BASIC), since this was adapted by Microsoft for the MSX system. Another suggested source for the abbreviation was Matsushita-Sony. However, according to Kazuhiko Nishi, the team used "Machines with Software eXchangeability" during its development. In 1985, Kazuhiko Nishi said that he named MSX after the MX missile, officially known as the LGM-118 Peacekeeper.
