Product Description


Product Description

Introducing the next stage in the evolution of the guitar game. Rocksmith is the first and only game where you can plug ANY real guitar into your console and actually LEARN while you PLAY.

Nothing plastic. Nothing fake. Just the most authentic guitar experience in music gaming. By plugging your electric guitar into your console, you’ll develop real skills and real styles while playing real music.

Featuring gameplay that automatically adjusts to your personal ability, and innovative game design that makes playing music visually intuitive, Rocksmith will engage experienced musicians as well as those who have never picked up a guitar before in their life.

You’ll unlock mini games to hone specific skills. You’ll be able to choose from a large catalogue of songs in different styles. And you’ll experience it all with an actual guitar. Nothing compares to playing a real guitar. Except playing Rocksmith.

The game will include the brand new Bass mode, offering players the opportunity to play bass guitar on all supported on-disc and downloadable songs.

Not only can players play the bass parts of songs, but bassists of all experience levels can also improve their skills with dedicated bass technique challenges and tutorial videos. Players can even use any 6-string guitar to emulate a 4-string bass. Tracking their learning has never been easier as bass progression is tracked separately from guitar progression.

Last but not least, all songs can be played in multiplayer with one person playing the bass part and the other the guitar part.

Key Features

  • When we say any guitar we mean any guitar: Whether it’s the guitar sitting in your attic that you have forgotten about up till now, or the guitar you are yet to buy, Rocksmith lets you plug any guitar into your console or computer. Electric guitar or electro-acoustic, as long as your guitar has a jack, you can play. And get plugged in right away as Rocksmith comes with a unique quarter-inch jack to USB cable!
  • Get Plugged In: Rocksmith will include a unique quarter-inch to USB cable that is the first of its kind, and will allow users to plug any real guitar with a quarter-inch jack directly into their Xbox 360®, PlayStation 3®, or PC. Developed exclusively for Rocksmith, this guitar cable is 11.25' and turns the guitar’s signal from analog to digital, allowing it to be recognised and played through video game consoles for the first time.
  • Real time adjustment levels: from beginner to rock god!: You love a challenge, but hate being overwhelmed. Rocksmith understands this, and knows exactly how far to push to keep you entertained. With addictive gameplay that adapts continuously to your personal skill level, you will automatically progress from single notes to complex chords at your own pace. Eventually you’ll be playing 100% of the actual guitar parts from the songs and the game will challenge you to step away from the notes on screen and play songs from memory. Imagine that. A video game that will get you stage-ready.
  • Bursting with Hits: One of the most satisfying moments for any guitar player is hearing yourself play your favourite song for the first time. Rocksmith has amassed an amazing library of songs from different music genres allowing players to experience those moments first hand. Whether you like classic rock bands such as The Rolling Stones, The Cure, Lynrd Skynrd or if you’re more into current chart-toppers such as The Strokes, Muse, Radiohead and The XX, we have you covered. And with our growing tracklist from metal to indie rock available for download, you will always find a song that suits your mood.
  • There’s always a way to develop your guitar skills and overcome your difficulties: Having troubles with the solo of your favourite song? The riff-repeater option is your saviour. It will isolate the song part of your choice, and let you repeat it over and over … until you eventually ace it! Want to improve your finger dexterity? Learn chords? Improve scales? For all of these and more, there’s a specific mini-game that will help you get it in Guitarcade. Rocksmith will turn your guitar into a controller, for instance, while shooting ducks in the Ducks mini-game you’ll actually be learning how to shift from fret to fret without even realising!
  • Turn your TV or computer into an amplifier: No need for an amplifier anymore, with Rocksmith your TV or your computer IS your amplifier and will let you try and play with loads of in-game pedals, amplifiers and cabinets. String pedals together with nearly infinite combinations and tweak your sound until you’re satisfied. Whether it’s a crunchy distortion, a vintage tremolo or a psychedelic reverb, we have it covered to make sure you can achieve the sound you’re looking for.
  • Play in multiplayer: Plug in a second guitar to go head-to-head with friends to see who can earn the highest score, or have fun playing cooperatively as lead and rhythm guitars. Also, all songs can be played in multiplayer with one person playing the bass part and the other the guitar part.
  • Brand new Bass mode: The game will include the brand new Bass mode, offering players the opportunity to play bass guitar on all supported on-disc and downloadable songs. Not only can players play the bass parts of songs, but bassists of all experience levels can also improve their skills with dedicated bass technique challenges and tutorial videos. Players can even use any 6-string guitar to emulate a 4-string bass. Tracking their learning has never been easier as bass progression is tracked separately from guitar progression.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rockmith + Patience = Guitarist 1 Oct 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I imported Rocksmith for the PS3 as a novice player almost a year ago and have put a large number of hours in since that time. Here are a few tips for those of you just starting out:

Lag - You don't need a fancy sound system if your TV displays too much lag due to its own processing of the HDMI signal. You can use a simple stereo, pair of headphones or an amp.

Game progression - Rocksmith can encourage you to run before you walk. For new guitarists, spend some serious time in guitarcade. The muscle memory it builds is an absolute must.

Setlist - This game made the light of day against all the odds. As a result, lack of buying power meant half the setlist was unknown to me. Approach it with an open mind. I've since bought several albums from artists I'd never heard of before this. Out of all of the tracks included by default, only two of them I can't stand.

Riff repeater - This is the best way to learn a track properly. Broken into managable chunks with speed or difficulties you can set. Rocksmith's documentation is awful and you may not realise how vital this is.

Practice offline - memorise riffs and play away from the game. You really need to hear what you are playing clearly.

Buy an amp - You must, must, must buy a guitar amplifier. Doesn't have too cost too much, but this is how your guitar is designed to be used. Rocksmith can be too forgiving on barre chords and will not be able to help you perfect other subtleties that your ears (and others) will pick up. You will also find out in short order what your guitar's pickups are capable of.

Use the internet - Justin Sandercoe and Marty Schwartz have provided lots of lessons and help, all free. Rocksmith is just part of your toolset to learn guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow to start but quickly becomes rewarding 4 Oct 2012
By C. Irwin TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought Rocksmith because my son is learning guitar at school and getting him to practice is quite difficult. I thought that Rocksmith might encourage him to supplement the exercises his guitar teacher sets with a more fun environment where he learns through play. Initial results would suggest that it's going to work..

I also bought it because I started guitar a few years ago and never got past the strumming stage on basic chords and some basic melodies, so I thought it might help tweak up my skills too.

It's worth saying that Rocksmith isn't educational software - it doesn't try to teach you music theory - but it is designed to let you start off slowly and quickly builds difficulty based on your ability, all within a gameplay environment.

NB. You need to set up extra PS3 users if you want multiple people to use the game, otherwise the adaptive learning gets all screwed up - a good player would make the game too difficult for a beginner. Set up multiple users and each profile is optimised for the user.


My son's experience so far:: He's been playing Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones and Next Girl by The Black Keys. On first run through it only wants you to play a note every bar or so, but after a few goes it adds more notes, and other strings, so that you build up the riffs. Even on the first goes my son was beaming at the end of the song. He played again before school this morning and loads of extra notes were added to Satisfaction - after initial fluster he got into the groove and performed it very well. He was absolutely delighted. Also, away from the PS3, he picked up his acoustic guitar and played the Next Girl riff.

4.0 out of 5 stars I've been waiting a long time for this! 29 Sep 2012
By ChrisR
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not very good at writing reviews, but if you're like me, and wondering if this 'game' could be beneficial in helping you to learn how to play the guitar, then here is my opinion.

I've been trying to learn the guitar for over 16 years. I've attempted countless different lessons, from free ones on YouTube, to a complete guitar course which cost me an arm and a leg. Like so many other people, I soon became impatient and bored with learning the basics - how to hold the guitar, chords and scales, I just wanted to play music, and I wanted it there and then. After many failed attempts, my guitar has been sat in the corner gathering dust, while I'm happily rocking out on my plastic axe to Guitar Hero and Rockband.

When I saw Rocksmith, my eyes lit up. Could this be what I've been waiting for for 16 years? I traded half my entire games collection to get this, and was it worth it? I would say definitely yes. You can already see from the screenshots that it has a similar 'feel' to the aforementioned games, but it's so much more than that. As a learning tool, there's no boring scales or chords to learn, not right away. You're plunged head first into playing your first song, and the beauty of it is, is that the game 'reads' your level, and adjusts itself accordingly. You start off playing on one or two strings with one finger, and if you are good at it, the game starts to add a bit more, gently squeezing a little bit more out of you. If it becomes to hard, the game steps back and lets you catch up. Basically, it's all about practice. After playing "I can't get no satisfaction" a few times in the game, I found that I could play it on my own afterwards, and that is unprecedented for me.

I've only been playing it for a few hours, and I intend to practice for an hour per day.
