HeavyMetalKing;4423209 said:Granted, this is playing at semantics, and it is still a shady way of advertising, but it's not technically untrue.
RRhoads;4423270 said:What Ubisoft means is that you can play with a real guitar. The Squier for Rockband is a controller with strings and frets, and it doesn't work like a guitar when you play in pro mode.

TheHundredDollarHeadache;4423362 said:I think he means you can't play the game without popping up the string mute (therefore preventing you from being able to hear yourself through the amp). Well, you can, but you'll be overstrummed to death.
RRhoads;4423141 said:Due to demand, they're going to release a Bass-mode as downloadable content a little while after launch.

raynebc;4423236 said:I know what you mean, but if taken to court over it (false advertising), Ubisoft would be forced to stop using the claim "use any guitar" because that's already demonstrated to be false. I do agree with you that it's the first console game that only works with a guitar and not with a controller for the core gameplay, but even then the game allows you to use a controller to map butons to effect pedals. Deceptive advertising aside, I'm a bit interested, but I won't drop $80 on it unless it turns out to work really well and they release DLC I'm interested in.

raynebc;4423186 said:I've seen them constantly claim to work with "any real guitar", and even that is a lie because they already said it won't work as intended except for 6 string electric guitar.

alexlifeson;4427997 said:Cant figure out the confusing notation at all.What are they thinkingGuess you have to go thru the tutorials to understand
tnevaker;4428065 said:my biggest issue with the notation is that it will look like an incomprehensible mess when you've got the full song playing, and you've got tons and tons of little flying blocks coming at you. the gameplay they've shown so far has only been on the easiest level. i don't know how many times i've seen a video with the riff from "satisfaction" because it's a simple riff that doesn't look too messy in this notation. but try to imagine something like the crazy train solo with those little spinning blocks for each note. same with chords... they show you the easy versions, where there's only one chord at the beginning of each measure. what is it going to look like when you've got a song strumming 16th note chords, and adding or removing notes on certain chords in the middle of a measure.

Bront20;4431319 said:For RB, it doesn't make as much sence, since the pro guitar is a niche item (mustang and squier), let alone a piece of hardware that will ONLY work for bass, unlike the guitar that works for both. For Rocksmith, it's easier, since they only have to do the charts since it can use any bass.
