Each host brought five predictions to the table and discussed everything they hope to see during the Xbox Games Showcase. You can listen to the episode on all podcast services to get the discussions on each prediction, but for record keeping purposes, here are the predictions outline during the episode.
1.) PowerStar Golf will make a return in the form of PowerStar Golf 2, the game will release within the first 3 months of the Xbox Series X.
2.) 1 VS 100 will make a return, the game will add in support for Microsoft Rewards in some fashion, where players can earn Microsoft Reward points for participating/winning as a means to get players to keep coming back.
3.) Compulsion Games will reveal their new game, it will not be ready any time soon.
4.) A Dead Rising Reboot will be announced, returning to the mall and will not feature Frank West as the main character.

3.) Final Fantasy XIV will be coming to Xbox for the first time. (Originally a brand new Final Fantasy Game will be revealed during the Xbox Showcase)
4.) There will not be a dedicated segment for Xbox Game Pass, IE no sizzle reel, no mention on the service features, the showcase will focus on games. (Games shown off can feature a Game Pass Logo or mention that a game will be coming to Game Pass, it just will not be a dedicated moment.)
5.) We will get the first look at the Suicide Squad game developed by RockSteady.
1.) Halo Infinite will be the first game shown off, afterward Microsoft/Xbox will announce a Halo Spin off title for the future, no release window, no specific genre.

3.) Yakuza Remastered will be shown off containing Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 coming to Xbox for the first time, also coming to Game Pass. Yakuza 6 will also be coming to Xbox/Game Pass so all the mainline Yakuza games will be on Xbox in preparation for Yakuza 7.
