    The tracklist has some good bands, probably repeats though. Wonder what the Animals song is. Also, lol at the comment: Finally, I can play a real guitar but can't play guitar hero.

    Gee, another game that'll bite the dust. Too bad The Animals & Rolling Stones apparently have songs on disc as we don't seem to be getting ANY here whatsoever.

    Expectations- DOA.

    Ubisoft, please just stick to Assassin's Creed.

    This actually looks pretty cool, hope the animals song is House of the Rising Sun.
    GET ON IT HMX!
    And using my own guitar in the game is a pretty big draw for me.

    I will reserve my opinion for when I try it out in a store or see it on youtube.

    Note to data conversion has ALWAYS been a problem and I don't see a video game solving it when it hardly works in professional DAWS.

    I discovered some promotional videos on youtube, but that doesn't really say much. Commercials are commercials. I want to see someone that bought it with their own money upload a video and say what they think.

    I found these links. They show a little of the interface. Looks like Slow Hands by Interpol and When I'm With You by Best Coast are in the game.

    Seems interesting. As someone else sorta said, I dunno how accurate the scoring will be.

    It might turn out to be all right. They aren't throwing any instruments in a volcano, which is a good sign :p

    I don't understand the disdain for 'traditional' music video games (as shown in the RS article). It's a GAME. Games are fun. Learning real guitar is, y'know, learning. Learning CAN be fun, I guess, but it's more work than a game. If you wouldn't call a COD player a poser for not joining the army, I don't see why anyone should have any hate for a fakey plastic 5 button guitar. Because everyone knows it's fakey and plastic. Because that's all it was ever supposed to be. A damn game.

    a) bandwagon hopping
    b) paid by ubisoft to write the article
    c) both

    The sheer denial that Rock Band 3's pro mode exists just feels...funny.

    Sorry if it was already posted... Ubisoft just announced a new real guitar game : RockSmith

    You need a real guitar (any guitar) and you plug it to the console thanks to a Jack-USB interface

    Links :

    http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/blogs/gear-up/rocksmith-the-first-real-guitar-game-20110314

    It seems there are no pictures or in-game video at the moment.

    By reading the game description, it looks more like the OFFBEAT game (http://www.offbeatforum.com/jamorigin/) than RB3

    What do you think ?

    In the article, they forgot to mention Rock Band 3 has a mode in which you can learn how to play Guitar. Is Pro mode that unknown? This a shame, as even on videogaming sites they don't know what the game is capable of..Bad advertisement..

    I don't know what to say, honestly. Nowadays, everything Ubisoft makes is a pile load of crap, and if there was a way to make a Guitar/Rhythm game with a true guitar and a "simple" USB/Jack adaptor, I think HMX would have used a similar technology..I trust HMX rather than the geniouses who brought us "We Dare", so guess my conclusions.

    If this sells more than RB3, though..Meh, can't even think about it.

    Dude, he joined in 2008. Probably a lurker.

    Also, they got "The Animals"? Interesting.

    I don't get it, are you sayin I'am a sort of Ubisoft dev and try to sell the product????

    Just look at my profile and links in my signature... I am a hardcore RB fan. I saw the news on twitter and I am just curious

    Kotaku has already run an article on it, not that hard to think people are finding it all over the place. Not to mention, there's already a thread going in the less rokk more talk section (albeit with a not-obvious title), which showed up on the forums 4 hours before this thread was created. The person that created that thread had the link above to Rolling Stone, and it's not that hard to imagine that some people who play Rock Band may regularly read Rolling Stone.

    Aaah sorry, don't saw the first thread. Mods can lock this one...

    As I said I found the news on twitter (with a link to the rolling stone article)

    Now that GH isn't around you guys can hate on Ubisoft now- especially since their ****ty Michael Jackson game outsold Dance Central and Rock Band 3

    Prepare you razor. The game interface seems so awkward.. Flags? o_o Meh.


    The main problem I have with this game and the short reviews that came along with is the lack of reference of RB3 and its Pro Mode.

    It's just disappointing and I think HMX really did the worst job ever at advertising "The" groundbreaking revolution of rhythm games. It's like they wanted the mode to be loved only by informed gamers and we hardcore fans. I just don't get it.

    What seems like the biggest Make it or Break it is the fact that you can use any guitar. That has to be damn near clunky as hell, or damn near impossible. I'm not sure of the accuracy of measuring sound wavelengths or, vibrations within the string, whatever the heck it is it's not gonna end up being accurate, and it's gonna end up spawning bad reviews.
