Product Description
Introducing the next stage in the evolution of the guitar game. Rocksmith is the first and only game where you can plug ANY real guitar into your console and actually LEARN while you PLAY.

Nothing plastic. Nothing fake. Just the most authentic guitar experience in music gaming. By plugging your electric guitar into your console, you’ll develop real skills and real styles while playing real music.

Featuring gameplay that automatically adjusts to your personal ability, and innovative game design that makes playing music visually intuitive, Rocksmith will engage experienced musicians as well as those who have never picked up a guitar before in their life.

You’ll unlock mini games to hone specific skills. You’ll be able to choose from a large catalogue of songs in different styles. And you’ll experience it all with an actual guitar. Nothing compares to playing a real guitar. Except playing Rocksmith.

The game will include the brand new Bass mode, offering players the opportunity to play bass guitar on all supported on-disc and downloadable songs.

Not only can players play the bass parts of songs, but bassists of all experience levels can also improve their skills with dedicated bass technique challenges and tutorial videos. Players can even use any 6-string guitar to emulate a 4-string bass. Tracking their learning has never been easier as bass progression is tracked separately from guitar progression.

Last but not least, all songs can be played in multiplayer with one person playing the bass part and the other the guitar part.

Key Features

When we say any guitar we mean any guitar: Whether it’s the guitar sitting in your attic that you have forgotten about up till now, or the guitar you are yet to buy, 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.
Real time adjustment levels: from beginner to rock god!: You love a challenge, but hate being overwhelmed. Rocksmith understands this, and knows exactly how far to push to keep you entertained. With addictive gameplay that adapts continuously to your personal skill level, you will automatically progress from single notes to complex chords at your own pace. Eventually you’ll be playing 100% of the actual guitar parts from the songs and the game will challenge you to step away from the notes on screen and play songs from memory. Imagine that. A video game that will get you stage-ready.
Bursting with Hits: One of the most satisfying moments for any guitar player is hearing yourself play your favourite song for the first time. Rocksmith has amassed an amazing library of songs from different music genres allowing players to experience those moments first hand. Whether you like classic rock bands such as The Rolling Stones, The Cure, Lynrd Skynrd or if you’re more into current chart-toppers such as The Strokes, Muse, Radiohead and The XX, we have you covered. And with our growing tracklist from metal to indie rock available for download, you will always find a song that suits your mood.
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.
Play in multiplayer: Plug in a second guitar to go head-to-head with friends to see who can earn the highest score, or have fun playing cooperatively as lead and rhythm guitars. Also, all songs can be played in multiplayer with one person playing the bass part and the other the guitar part.
Brand new Bass mode: The game will include the brand new Bass mode, offering players the opportunity to play bass guitar on all supported on-disc and downloadable songs. Not only can players play the bass parts of songs, but bassists of all experience levels can also improve their skills with dedicated bass technique challenges and tutorial videos. Players can even use any 6-string guitar to emulate a 4-string bass. Tracking their learning has never been easier as bass progression is tracked separately from guitar progression.

Always wanted this. Thanks

Might buy this for a friend who turned his nose up at me playing Guitar Hero becuase 'it's not the real thing'.

Not in stock, but worth a punt as a back order.

just been on and its now showing over £53 with £1.99 shipping :-(

Ooops on mobile the deal takes you to the above (£53) but its there on the page under other sellers

Excellent! Glad you found it can't understand why I cant get the "Get Deal" button to go straight to the £29.99 one

Bear in mind that the Amazon £29.99 listing says "Usually dispatched within 10 - 13 business days".

Did anyone else get stuck at the Harmonics part? It sounds more or less like in the tutorial but I only get it to register about 1 in 5 times.
Really annoying

Hot, the cable alone will sell for £15-£20.

Ordered, thanks

Thanks very much! Bought and heat added

For any beginners considering this I would recommend. Having never picked up a guitar before I got a loan of an electric guitar and bought this. It progresses at a perfect pace, initially just hitting single notes. As you improve so does the difficulty so that you never master it but without trying your scores get better and better. With practice I'm now playing chords without thinking and I'm looking to buy my own guitar.

Bought this in CEX the other day for £28 and it just happened to be brand new

Been playing this since release and absolutely love it!
The difficulty scaling is pretty much spot on and the tutorials are decent as is the Guitarcade.
The additional songs are a little pricey (About 260 MS Points vs Guitar Hero or Rock band at 120 Ms points for example) but ultimately if you want to learn guitar and can't afford to continually pay out for lessons then you should look no further X)

Thanks! Just bought this

Same price at Game.co.uk with 2 days for delivery.

Cheers, got that cheap electric guitar that was on here a couple of months ago so this will be good to keep my attention and learn some stuff.

Is this any good with a Bass guitar?

Been thinking of picking one up but haven't played in years, this might be a good way to get back into it.

Been thinking of getting this but put off by people saying the sound lags anyone confirm or deny this??
Thanks

There is a facility in game to manage any audio lag you might encounter, I've not had the problem personally but I am aware that if you are using a surround sound speaker system you may see some lag issues.

The game does suggest on one of the loading screens that you use an optical cable where possible for best performance, but I've never seen the problem just using my tv.

Xbox one :P

Hi can anyone confirm if the Game version for £29.99 and free del. includes the real tone cable cos its not clear from the website.

It should do, GAME have never sold the game without the cable. If not just return it?

Game one doesn't say includes a cable but the amazon one does

Bought this last week for £45. Actually really good if you are learning to play the guitar as you build up speed and strength of your fingers
Make sure you get it with the cable

The lag is there if you don't play it through an AV system, but it's not too bad.

Is there any specific type of guitar that this works with or is it literally any electric guitar? It definitely sounds like an interesting concept and I'm very interested in going for it! Any help or guidance would be much appreciated!

Thanks, bought.

Gone for it! Got some picks as well.....now just need a guitar! Thanks for the heads up.

I am slightly concerned we will all be sent one without a cable though and have to send them all back! In the past I have ordered books under the "other buying options" section that were hardback/softback despite the description on the main page saying the opposite.

Any electric will do.

I haven't given it enough time yet, but I'm mainly one or two fingers up & down the fret board.

Thanks OP!
