Mega-Tallica;4336193 said:Just browsing around the net, it looks like not many people consider guitars with midi pickups as "real" guitars so they are completely disregarding RB3's guitar (which is full scale unlike the Rocksmith one may be) and PowerGig's since they both have midi pickups. It's a shame how ignorant people can be sometimes ain't it?
princessjessa13;4336224 said:...though, to be fair, I don't think ANYONE can consider what PowerGig had to be a REAL GUITAR xP
Lawdog1521;4336239 said:Rocksmith sounds like a rock polishing game.
Mega-Tallica;4336226 said:If they consider the First Act guitars as "real", they can consider the PowerGig guitar as real. It is pretty much a real guitar except it has a smaller scale, much like the Les Paul Junior's
TheHundredDollarHeadache;4336253 said:I remember that someone once got sued by First Act because they were calling First Act (marching band) instruments "instrument-shaped objects".Les Paul Juniors have the same scale length as the other Gibson guitars, you may be thinking of the "Express" model they are bundling Rocksmith with.

skyttskytt;4336264 said:HMX seems like they don't have the manpower to put out a constant flood of pro g/b DLC, so why not another ~40 songs (or however many) for $40 or cheaper?
monkeyfish;4336273 said:Unless I read that article wrong or missed some info, there's only guitar charts, for one thing.
Mega-Tallica;4336287 said:Yes it does and I think it also had a real pickup so you could play through an amp.Also, it's not made out of plastic, it's made out of basswood and maple, two very commonly used woods for "real" guitars. The only thing about it is it has a very small scale which makes it feel toy-ish and unauthentic.

princessjessa13;4336329 said:After "Misery Business", "House of the Rising Sun" became my most desired RB track. ESPECIALLY AS WE HAVE A F*CKING KEYBOARD NOW!!!Ugh, this better not be an exclusive track...
TheGreatDave;4336318 said:Rocksmith is an evolution of Guitar Rising, a game which was announced at least as far back as 2008, and supported any guitar. It's safe to say after seeing that those videos back in the day Harmonix were inspired to create pro guitar mode for RB3 in order to stay competitive.When you think about it, Harmonix kinda stole the idea. Not sure how to feel about this tbh.
