If you still haven’t taken the time to check out Rocksmith, then I am disappointed in you but also have good news. As of today, Ubisoft’s Rocksmith Guitar & Bass Edition is available for PC users at retail. What's more, if you have a Microsoft Xbox 360 or Sony PlayStation 3 you'll be able to find the re-release of Rocksmith that now includes the Bass Expansion pack included on the disc.
Of course the game still also comes with the Rocksmith Real tone Cable allowing you to plug in your guitar to rock out with.You can use any guitar with a 1/4” pickup. The cable was developed exclusively through rocksmith, giving your guitar a USB interface, converting the analog signal to digital. Bass arrangements have been added to each of the in-game tracks on the disc, and many of the DLC tracks (not all of them though, since some don’t have bass parts in them.) Even if you don’t have a bass guitar, you can emulate one on your 6-string guitar.
This game was already pretty good, and high on my list of favorite games. The added PC support and the fact that the Bass expansion now comes standard with the game makes it just that much easier to recommend. You can even still pick up the guitar bundle which includes an Epiphone Les Paul Junior guitar in the box which you can use with the game, or even on stage. Its not some gimmick game accessory. Its a real guitar.
With Rocksmith you learn real guitar techniques and real songs on a real guitar. Sure its a game, and a pretty fun one at that but they’ve cleverly snuck in education too. You can learn a lot while playing whether you’re a beginner or already have some guitar experience under your belt. Its one of the best examples I’ve ever seen of an educational game and highly recommended for anybody looking to sharpen their skills.
