    Tried ionAXXIA with a friend using controller on TV, and he wasn't making the connections with the default controls that I thought fairly standard, so here I am asking if people have expectations of controls. In my case, I had "Accept" on PlayStation Cross, XBox A, and "Cancel" on PlayStation Triangle, XBox Y.

    When picking up an new game, what would you assume to be Accept and Cancel buttons when navigating menus?

    I think on most Xbox Games they use (B) as Back or Cancel, and use (A) as Select.

    For me cross is ok for accept and triangle is ok for cancel. I think this is the right choice.
