Illustration for article titled Ubisoft Reveals a Slew of New Tracks for Rocksmith

We've already told you about Rocksmith, Ubisoft's foray into the rhythm-and-music game genre. The title brings something new to the table. Unlike Rock Band or Guitar Hero, players of Rocksmith will be challenged to use a real guitar. No, seriously. The French developer promises that the title will come packaged with "a unique quarter-inch USB cable that is the first of its kind, allowing users to plug any real guitar with a quarter-inch jack directly into their favorite console."

DISCUSSION

This seems much more useful as a teaching tool, at least to some extent. I had been planning on getting RB3 plus that squire guitar but this looks like it will cost far less (since i have a guitar already) and be far easier to pick up and use, if it works as its advertised.

Its supposed to be intuitive enough to know how many notes you are capable of playing as you play the songs...if you are playing 1/10th of the notes well all the time then it bumps it up.

Even though I've spent a lot of money on a guitar, multiple amps, etc I've never really been able to get into it all that much because I've never been good enough to do anything interesting or had anyone to practice with. Hopefully this will be a big help in finally starting to properly learn guitar.
