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.

dog037;4335530 said:Looks like Slow Hands by Interpol and When I'm With You by Best Coast are in the game.
mec_os;4336443 said:i'm sure they did their research since their wording was very specific. they said "Rocksmith is the first and only game where players can plug ANY guitar with a standard quarter-inch input jack"
The game will feature tracks from The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Interpol and Nirvana among others. Ubisoft is demoing the game this weekend at the South by Southwest festival. It will be playable at La Zona Rosa in Austin, Texas on Thursday, March 17 to Saturday, March 19 from 1-4 p.m.
mec_os;4336405 said:i second the exclusive tracks would be a reason to hate. that would be such a waste for both the user and the artist specially since there is no other instruments. i'm guessing if it's successful we'll see BassSmisth, DrumSmith, KeyboardSmith and MicrophoneSmith... possibilities are endless with Ubisoft.
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.
