Xbox Prediction Game 2024

Welcome to the Xbox Prediction Thread for 2024

The voting ends on January 15th 2024

Format is shamelessly stolen from JuanLatino and Angie of ResetEra.

Banner from the one and only @Klobrille Get well soon my friend!

Last year’s results (winner in bold):

DeoGame: 61

Peter420: 51

Saintsflow20: 69

Precursor: 51

Mort: 61

AllianceOfficer: 51

The rules are simple. Answer the questions, the player with the most points wins. Just remind me to check in at the end of the day.

You can copy paste the questions and answer, or you can go by number and write your answer.

Read the rules carefully. You could gain points, but you could also lose points. Be strategic.

No prizes planned at the moment.

I’m coming in late with these but it’s still only the first week of 2024 so I hope I still count! I know Nate the Hate did a predictions thing already but I actually have not watched it. I also tend to not trust him because of him saying Persona 6 is PS exclusive when Sega has all but confirmed that it is not…

  1. What third-party games will Xbox have marketing for (excluding known answers of Star Wars Outlaws, Metaphor Refantazio, Persona 3 Reload and LaD Infinite Wealth)

It is hard to name something here because it’s always from a game that was previously unannounced. I will just say that it will be something from a Japanese publisher because Xbox seems to lean more heavily on those for marketing deals as it’s a part of marketing that they of course cannot fulfill internally.

Hi-Fi Rush on Switch 2. Dunno about PS. Again, really, nothing to do with current rumors. This thought just came to me recently and honestly I can see it happening.

EDIT: I’m changing this one because of rumors that seem to all but confirm this. New prediction: Phil Spencer will appear at the Switch 2 showcase in some way. Maybe to showcase CoD!
