The canceled it last time for the PC version. I even had to pay the return postage to return the wrong item. Why waste our time trying.

Not necessarily a misprice - Amazon were selling it for £29.99 during the Black Friday lightning offers. Looks like a good price.

U don't pay to return a wrong item. Either the retailer does or you tell them to come pick it up.

Good price. Noticed this at £44 in Tesco too on PS3 and 360, thought that was a decent price

Lol, you kidding me? All these thieves do it, they never refund the return postage even when their fault.
I have been sent skip rubbish by Zavvi (broken cases), Gameseek (used resealed as new), zoverstocks (used resealed as new), Koch Media/Wowudo (used resealed as new), Gamecollection (damaged), Coolshop (multiple scammers) and none have refunded my postage ever. Bandits

great price. great game/tool. heat.

I have a bass, is it worth just buying this or waiting for the Les Paul Junior bundle to drop in price again?

amazon is out of stock on the bundle but there're some other bundles out there at a decent price is not a les paul but would be ok still you'd probably find a decent used guitar on gumtree and this may even be cheaper than the bundle

The Les Paul bundle comes back in stock at Amazon frequently. But it's usually a limited amount. One or two at a time. Use camelcamelcamel.com/ to track it. Buy it at 104. I still keep getting alerts randomly in the middle of the night when it comes back in stock briefly.

Or look for a guitar you want now and add the price of this. But it's worth noting the Les Paul Jr is worth around 80-90 on it's own.

"Possible misprice but great if they honour it" - You mean great if they actually send it out, Zavvi are notoriously bad at delivery's and whether they even send the item, I ordered something and a year later they cancelled it saying it was a misprice !!! A Year!!! And that was after countless emails to and fro.

Sounds like you have had a lot of bad luck - you can get your money back in each case though with a bit of persistence, and it may involve speaking to trading standards..but in my experience a strongly worded email or straightforward phone call can sort it out pretty quickly, once you point out the law to them (and typically quote it). Had that argument about return postage many times...always got it back in the end.

This is a great deal if they honour it though - great game/learning tool and the cable is pretty cool, the previous version of rocksmith got me back into playing guitar

Mine was dispatched yesterday so they are honouring the item - we'll just have to see if it arrives with or without the cable!

Canon eBay refunded me.

Got this with the PS3 with the Les Paul before xmas, brilliant piece of software. Any elec guitar will work and the cable enables direct link up to both PC and Mac music software.

Just had a thought, I bought same bundle before Christmas, will the cable work with Xbox360 version or does it use a different cable to connect to Xbox. Was just wondering, if I can use cable on PS3 and Xbox then I only need to find a deal for the Xbox game so the kids can use it with my cable.

No idea. Would have thought cable would be the same for both it is a USB at one end and normal 'plug' for guitar. Can't think they would produce 2 diff cables.

How long is the cable? Or do you have to stand close to the TV? I need something that is like 4m+ and I was wondering if anyone has plugged a USB extension lead with it / or if it works with a USB extension lead?

135" long, not got an extension cable to try. Would think as long as it is a good one and not cheap it would work.

3.4 Metres long isn't so bad, I will just move the PS3 to the centre of the room when I am playing if the USB cable extension is not supported. Thank you for your response it is much appreciated.

I keep missing this on Zavvi, I bet someone just buys them all up to fleabay

I still think either my copy is faulty or the Les Paul guitar is, it never seems to play the right notes

i've taken the firm stance before and refused to return stuff, then sent them legal type letters when they don't refund me. office of fair trading say the retailer has to refund you even if you don't return the item- and that's on stuff that they send correctly! if the retailer wants the stuff back they have to take you to court, they cannot refuse a refund. crazy but there you go.

I seem to be having the same problem too Might help if I go a bit rock star and hold the guitar from the fret with both hands and smash it against the wall.

That was my exact question - I always called it the guitar arm, so I had a look through Wackypedia

i had the same issue with the pc version when they sold me the wrong version, and wouldnt send me a cable etc. dont shop from these robbing bstards. if enough people boycotted them, they would quickly go out of business, but of course they wont
