Rocksmith lets you plug any guitar into your console or computer. Electric guitar or electro-acoustic, as long as your guitar has a jack, you can play. And get plugged in right away as Rocksmith comes with a unique quarter-inch jack to USB cable!

Get Plugged In: Rocksmith will include a unique quarter-inch to USB cable that is the first of its kind, and will allow users to plug any real guitar with a quarter-inch jack directly into their Xbox 360®, PlayStation 3®, or PC. Developed exclusively for Rocksmith, this guitar cable is 11.25' and turns the guitar’s signal from analog to digital, allowing it to be recognised and played through video game consoles for the first time.

There’s always a way to develop your guitar skills and overcome your difficulties: Having troubles with the solo of your favourite song? The riff-repeater option is your saviour. It will isolate the song part of your choice, and let you repeat it over and over … until you eventually ace it! Want to improve your finger dexterity? Learn chords? Improve scales? For all of these and more, there’s a specific mini-game that will help you get it in Guitarcade. Rocksmith will turn your guitar into a controller, for instance, while shooting ducks in the Ducks mini-game you’ll actually be learning how to shift from fret to fret without even realising!

Turn your TV or computer into an amplifier: No need for an amplifier anymore, with Rocksmith your TV or your computer IS your amplifier and will let you try and play with loads of in-game pedals, amplifiers and cabinets. String pedals together with nearly infinite combinations and tweak your sound until you’re satisfied. Whether it’s a crunchy distortion, a vintage tremolo or a psychedelic reverb, we have it covered to make sure you can achieve the sound you’re looking for.

Good price. I paid more than this during a lightning deal

Amazing price and despite the problem with duplicate keys on the PC (which is a little hassle), this wont suffer the slight lag between tasks that the PS3 version seem to.

pc version looks a good price, biut I have a couple of questions:
do you need to have a steam account for the pc version ?
can you load this onto more than one pc in the same household - using the same code* ?

*not sure if dupe key codes/no codes in pc packaging is still a problem

Be prepared for sore fingers and rock hard skill levels, it's not guitar hero...

Fantastic price for a game I'm yet to get to grips with.

Awesome price

Awesome game fantastic price!

Cheers, wanted it for a while so can't argue at this price.

Steam codes - 1 code per account

Is this the cheapest way to get the real tone cable? I fancy playing it on 360 and already have a copy of the game.
Surprised it hasn't been cloned by the chinese, or third party "datel" like solutions havent come out to bring the price down a bit.

Hot, paid about £30 for the PS3 version and from reading the setlist I think this PC one comes with more songs?

As a guitarist I can't help but feel some of the song choices are a little bit tricky for new starts...

Hopefully they work up to the harder tracks and not just give up right away when they can't play the harder ones if they don't like the easier songs.

That being said have heat, I'm tempted to get it just to see from a teaching perspective if this is worth recommending to students.

Wellen it doesn't work like that. Any song willbe made easy, ie single note and get harder (even mid song) as the player gets better, until you are playing the full song note for note, its really quite a brilliant method for teaching. Played guitar for half my life and still find this game useful, fun and a great way to encourage you to play every day.

I am addicted to this game. It taught me how to play Freebird.

I want to get this, can anyone recommend a cheap but decent guitar?

Hmmm... Kind of tempted for the cable, I'm wondering how the interface works with virtual amps when compared to a more expensive pod xt interface etc... anyone have any idea?

JUst bought it so thanks. Pity the DLC is very pricey but I really want the Queen songs sooo, ill just have to fork out for em.

I think you'll be able to record it as a sound source into Reaper or Ableton Live or any DAW really. Then you can add effects to it using a Vst like the free version of Guitar Rig. The latency and the sound quality may not be the best though. If you're in any way serious about recording guitar you'll want something like a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 or similar, it's around £100 and you can plug a combination of two guitars or microphones into it and has very ince preamps built in to boost the volume whereas this cable will need external boosting which is probably done by software in the game?

It's worth a try at £19.99 but it won't be anything like as good as a dedicated set up, even one as inexpensive as £100.

What do you consider cheap? I'm assuming you're just starting out? Rocksmith isn't a substitute for guitar books and tutoring, though I wish they'd use this technology in tutoring software. Do you just want to use it as an enhanced Guitar Hero? A really good starter guitar that will see you from beginner to intermediate is the Epiphone Les Paul Jr for about £80 to £120. The tone of the guitar is obviously quite fat as it's a Les Paul copy so if your favourite guitarists use Stratocaster type guitars then you're better of with a Squier Stratocaster or Yamaha Pacifica for around £140. Anything below a Les Paul Jr like a Rocket for £70 is going to be really lacklustre or below that at £50 for a knockoff special is pretty much going to be counterproductive.

Cable works with garage band on the mac.

Tempted to try and plug it in from the line out of my amp but a bit worried it'll knacker the amp (Super Champ XD) due to an impedence mismatch or something.

Heat for this

Have been contemplating this for ages, I have a number of guitars but never managed to learn much more than a few chords.

Hopefully this will help rekindle my interest. Had an £11 TCB Amazon voucher too, so at 9 quid it has to be worth a punt.

montblanc, i'm intrigued on how it would sound with decent impulse responses and a plugin... I used to run a dedicated pre-amp for 16 channel live recording through an m-audio lt sound card and I managed to get some great sounds in the end :). Don't fancy shelling out for line 6 pod because half of the cost is the crap software :). Reaper is decent though. I'll probably end up with a focusrite or something similar as you say though :).

Shows as £34.99??
