Rocksmith caught my eye in the Steam Winter Sale but it doesn't come with the Real Tone cable So I've spent quite a lot of time researching the best way to get the cable and discovered that for just £3.50 more than the base price for Rocksmith 2014 (including the cable at Amazon) you can get 50 extra tracks from Rocksmith 2011 too.

Here's how it works:
Rocksmith is currently reduced from £39.99 to £13.59 in the steam sale, but it doesn't come with the Real Tone guitar to USB cable you need to play (reports are you need a genuine one for the latency to be acceptable).
The cable goes for £19-£25 alone on Amazon, ebay etc. It's not cheaper than that anywhere.
So instead I found that Rocksmith (2011, the original one) INCLUDING the cable is available for £23.99 at Amazon. 2014 is supposed to be much improved but the trick here is there are 50 songs on the 2011 version that you can import into the new game with the purchase of a £7.99 tool (licensing issue apparently which is why it's not free).

So instead of £41.99 for the PC version of 2014 with a cable you pay £45.57 and get an extra 50 or so songs! The songs are a pretty good selection and go for £2.39 each (when not on sale) so in theory that's £115 worth of extra tracks for £3.50.

1. Buy Rocksmith 2014 in the Steam Winter Sale
2. Buy Rocksmith (2011) including cable at Amazon:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rocksmith--Real-Tone-Cable-DVD/dp/B007KGI9DC
3. Buy the Rocksmith 2014 Disc Import Tool on Steam £7.99
4. Use the above tool to import almost all (48 I think) of the songs from Rocksmith into your new Rocksmith 2014.
5. Learn to play the guitar

As far as I can see you can't even buy the 2011 songs as DLC anyway so this is the only way you can get them.

Hope it's useful to some people. Limited stock dispatched by Amazon but there are other sellers with a similar price including delivery.

Sale on Steam ends tomorrow but it'll probably be back again later so this should apply for the next couple of weeks.

Rocksmith 2014 is currently on offer at the MacGameStore for $14.98. I think that it'll also work with a PC.

'Not currently available' on that site but seems they may have more codes over the weekend.

Thanks for the info. Still works as a system for getting lots of free songs for the price of the cable you have to buy anyway, so that just makes it an even better deal if you can save another £9 using a key.

The song import tool says "must own Rocksmith on steam" does the version of Rocksmith we order from Amazon unlock in steam?
