eurogamer wrote:For game company Ubisoft the music genre is still very much alive.
It's just announced Rocksmith, a game that comes with a real electric guitar and features songs from the Rolling Stones and Nirvana.
"Guitar Hero is a party game. Rocksmith is a music experience," Ubisoft senior vice president of marketing Tony Key told The Hollywood Reporter.
Ubisoft reckons Rocksmith will teach players how to play the guitar – this, it says, makes it a game with "benefits". It is said to play like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but you're strumming and picking actual notes and chords on real strings. The game learns your abilities as you play and "adjusts gently" to help you learn.
It comes with a standard input jack that can plug "most" electric guitars into a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. The Nintendo Wii is not supported.
Apparently Ubisoft is negotiating with Gibson and others to sell a $200 (£124) version of the game that would come bundled with an electric guitar.
45 songs are expected on the disc, including tracks from the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Nirvana and the Animals. Game's due out in September.
joystiq wrote:In one of the timeliest strategic moves in the video game industry's recorded history, Ubisoft has announced an upcoming rhythm title from a totally new IP, called Rocksmith. The game lets players strum through tunes by artists such as, David Bowie, Interpol, and The Rolling Stones using any real electric guitar they may have sitting around the house with a quarter-inch input jack.
As pointed out by internet sleuth supererogatory, the portfolio of illustrator Greg Korn reveals that the title is actually Guitar Rising, a piece of vaporware long in development at GameTank. Korn explains the project was "purchased by Ubisoft and currently in development for consoles." This certainly sounds like the very same thing.
The remaining mystery is how the guitar will track the notes plucked or strummed by players -- the Squier Stratocaster for Rock Band 3 can only do so using built-in semiconducters on each fret and a MIDI adapter. Is the game going to pick up on the actual note produced by the guitar? At the very latest, we'll find out when Rocksmith drops during the second half of 2011. For now, check out the screens and trailer below to get a feel for how cool you're going to look while playing.

That'll be an absolutely strawberry floating shoddy Epiphone Les Paul Special II then.
...Euurrgh.. *shudder* They sell for £119 on their own.. so if you take into account the trade cost of the guitar ('probably' around £65-70) it makes sense that it's the only "Gibson" they can afford to bundle with the game..
Do we really need another music game? Last time I checked Rock Band & Guitar Hero provided all that you need for a good laugh with some friends as you, with a few beers onboard, pretend to be rock stars for the evening.
If Ubisoft insist on unleashing another music game onto the market place at least bundle it with a crate of booze.
It's because Rock Band's Pro mode has training sections which require buttons on the fret. If you make a mistake on the same section repeatedly, then the game will automatically pause and show you where your hand is currently and also where it should be to play the current section correctly (whether that section is a segment of a song or part of the early training mode)
That couldn't really be done on a budget Gibson (to my knowledge).
