hakko504;4393590 said:As for the charts, well, my guess is that they will be no better nor worse than HMX charts for RB3 on average. Since they can't check what strings you actually play I'd say that there is a little more leeway in how to chart/play in Rocksmith. Even if it's charted one way you can probably play it the way you prefer if you think that's easier as long as you play the same notes. Think 'Smoke on the water' which is charted 5/3/5 by HMX but almost everywhere else as 0/3/5. Technically it's the same notes, but in RB3 you can't choose which way to play, but in Rocksmith both ways will most likely work without problems, because it's the same notes, just on different strings.

The latter said that even though the system was deeper than RB3's Pro Mode, it was more confusing, and really didn't stack up against traditional learning. I've never played the game myself (duh!) but looking at videos of it, I'd have to agree with the latter.

Doom878;4397499 said:Is this game going to help us tune the guitar according to the song? It would be nice. Say I play something in Drop D, the notes will still ring out since there's no mute. Sure the sound will come out of the game but I'll still hear my guitar playing a low E instead. Or am I overanalyzing?
Some follow up answers for you guys: 1) The cable comes WITH the game for $79.99. 2) You cannot use ANY 1/4" to USB cable. The Rocksmith cable has special technology that allows it to be compatible with next gen consoles.
