Best price so far as far as I'm aware for a Rocksmith 2014 key, activates on Steam. Perfect if like me, you already own a Real tone cable and just need the game!

It is possible to get this working with a USB sound card and without the Official Ubisoft Real Tone cable according to this article : alessandrogonella.com/201…le/

Though it looks like it takes some jiggering and pokering!

magicnigel has kindly confirmed that this key works for both Windows and Mac, so go nuts on guitar Apple users!


You will need the official Cable to run this correctly.generic USB cable will cause problems including lag and delay,making this software worthless.

Is it much better over the original? Does it do away with the annoying laggy menu delays?

I haven't heard any complaints about laggy menu delays. I think it's generally considered to be excellent, it's got 89 on metacritic.

I never played the first version and never touched a guitar (except the plastic guitar hero/rock band ones...) before getting this on the Xbox and I think its great

Anyone now if you have to use the cable or can you use an ASIO driver... I.e. any pro recording soundcard? Seems a bit silly to buy a cheap usb cable when I already have a Line 6 UX8.. I know the original version only support the official cable but wondered if they had updated that..

oooh nice find blue, heat

I hammered the first one, and this one is way, way better. I think the track list from the first one is better, but just get the import from the first "game" and you're away to go. To me (as a beginner) 2014 seems to teach you how to play properly and session mode is amazing.

Great price, heat added.

Can you change the string colours so they go in a rainbow or something? The first game made me very confused as to which string was which on-screen compared to the real guitar.

People have used all sorts of other ways to connect and in the end it wasn't good enough. There was a delay without the official cable. So I would just buy it and avoid the hassle.

Yes, although coloured strings don't last long at all. I wouldn't recommend it unless they have some excellent reviews.

Great game, or rather tool :). Just remember. If you don't own Rockstar 2013 you won't be able to use/buy songs from older edition.

shame this is not the mac/pc version. this is not a mac vs pc complaint. It's just my main machine is a mac but i only have a pc laptop which probably won't have enough grunt to run it

(not going down the bootcamp route either)

I don't mean real coloured strings, I mean the coloured strings on the screen. only It makes no sense to me that it goes Red Yellow Blue Orange Green Purple... so I keep accidentally playing the wrong notes by playing the wrong strings because I can't make the mental connection that Orange is meant to be G in the middle of other meaningless colours. I'd like it if I could set my own colours for strings on the screen.

The loading times in the original really did my head in.

This game is far, far better.

You sure about that? SteamPlay games work for both. On the mac store it says the key works for both so I can't imagine why this key wouldn't

Hey man, I had a look on the google and it seems that with a little effort you can get the game working with without the real tone cable and with a regular USB soundcard.

I hope that's of some use to you!

I don't think you can change the string colours, but you can change the strings orientation, so the strings flip the other way round, I found this much better to read what was going on.
I would also say, take your time, if your getting confused then slow everything right down until it sinks in. I'm a 40 year old who has always fancied playing guitar and knew that I haven't got the time or the patience to learn "properly" but, after 12 months of learning guitar from scratch I can play Muse Hysteria and Arctic Monkeys R U Mine from memory (without the game , through an amp) also learned Nirvana Polly without the game last week (cheers JustinGuitar.com). I'm so chuffed with myself

Just enjoy it and don't stress out.

Yup, it's miles better. No audio or video lag and no loading times.

Anyone know where's cheapest for the cable at the moment (with or without game)?

The cable is the same whether it's for Xbox, Playstation, PC or Mac and for either the original Rocksmith game or the new Rocksmith 2014 game.

With that in mind; Game sell it for £19.99 but it's OOS at the mo.

Amazon sell it for £24.99 and is in stock

If you're feeling crazy you can buy the original game with cable for the PC for £43.70 from Amazon

Or even crazier, you can get the cable for £26 and get the original game for Playstation 3 as well!

Just buy little round coloured stickers for under your strings % neck and number the neck ones

Is this the steam key?

Yep

Great deal. Have some heat.

Best game I have ever played and I've been a gamer for over 30 years.

For hundreds of free songs google smithys anvil. Sign up, make one hello post and you have access to all the custom songs. Don't forget to thank the creator of the track and leave some constructive feedback. For beginners look for my custom track of arctic monkeys - do I wanna know

Add another £25 to this price,you will need the official cable to play it.anything un-official will cause problems like lag/delay and will make it un-usable.
So unless you already have the official cable , it's £30 not £14.99

Thanks for the input, do you have a source for that? That generic usb always causes lag?

Thank you, just bought.

Orginal Rocksmith learning curve went vertical for me half way in, in this you can step out to riff learner at any point, should be a great help.

How do I get the MAC / OSX version, it doesn't show it on Steam ?

Anyone having issues of playing after activation? Mine keeps saying error contacting key server, having no luck in fixing

Great find. I bought the 360 version bundled with a guitar for £110 and decided that having it on the laptop offers even better flexibility. As much as that sounds like overkill it means as I can practise lag-free with earphones. £15 is a no-brainer IMO.

Showing as £39.99, before the 25% discount, for me now

Boo, I'm too late. Prices change so quickly

Looks like there's quite the problem with Rocksmith and steam at the moment
