Rocksmith Hey everyone. LOVE the enthusiasm and interest. here are a few answers that I can provide right now: @Marios: As with any real instrument tuning is essential. Rocksmith will help you tune your guitar so youll be off and jamming in no time. @Jeroen: Rocksmith will feature both lead and rhythm, from single notes to complex chords. The game will measure bends and determine the accuracy of your bends. We will also offer alternate tunings in the game for more advanced players.
Apples;4336974 said:From a purely business perspective this is really confusing game. Ubisoft is entering into a declining market space against big-time established competition. And not only that, but there have been numerous "cautionary tales" against this sort of thing in the form of Power Gig and Rock Revolution.
Apples;4336974 said:Not only that but the game has significant up front requirements in the form of new hardware, which is difficult to justify in tough economic times.
skyttskytt;4337149 said:I don't think that's necessarily true. I can see this as being marketed largely toward people who already own guitars, so all you need is the software. I mean, how many people have guitars just sitting around that they don't touch anymore? They can't use it in RB3, but hey, why not try this game out? I think that's going to be the big selling point.
Death50;4337283 said:Also as some people mentioned how much money did this shell out to score them into it? Gone for years from GH and RB, and here they re enter with this. Interesting...
dog037;4337305 said:But Rolling Stones have had numerous songs in Guitar Hero, including one in the most recent game.
LiveHomeVideo;4336063 said:Even article viewers on Youtube are pissed over the lack of mention of the ultimate music game (not PowerGig, no, I'm talking about Rock Band 3).
m_estock;4337364 said:I'm interested to see how this will work - using any guitar means that the game uses the note/pitch coming from the guitar and decodes it into game data. I see a ton of problems with this.... For example, if the guitar isn't tuned perfectly to a T then it would throw the game off. The fact that HMX chose not to do it this way is a big sign that it has problems. I'm sure they entertained the idea.
Featuring gameplay that automatically adjusts to the players skill level and innovative game design that makes reading music visually fun and intuitive, Rocksmith engages experienced musicians and those who are picking up a guitar for the first time. The game includes a sizeable library of music from classic rock bands to current artists, such as The Animals, The Black Keys, David Bowie, Interpol, Nirvana, and The Rolling Stones,.
hakko504;4338025 said:Speaking of Youtube, I've been posting quite a lot there about the difference between RB3's pro mode and this game but I could use a little help there. Someone wrote down the Squier, and while he has a valid point that the Squier might not be the best guitar, I'd love to see some other step up and post their impression of the guitar.

tnevaker;4336907 said:don't forget FluteSmith, SaxSmith, TambourineSmith, and CowbellSmith. the possibilities are endless!and when they get around to some artist-exclusive titles, we could be in for a real treat. i can't wait to learn some tasty Johnny Marr riffs when i get my copy of SmithsSmith.
Chemical Phoenix;4339002 said:I will say this if the game works anything like RB3's Pro mode (and as intended) there will be comments as to why RB3 doesn't support the use of a real guitar as opposed to guitars made for the game. I think I'll wait until more is known and more screenshots appear before I make any judgment.
Bront20;4339034 said:The thing RB3 has that this game can't is real time correct fretting guidance, because there's no finger sensors in the fret.
