Rocksmith PS3 demo video

It's time to put your plastic guitars away and pick up a real axe. Ubisoft's latest guitar game, Rocksmith is hoping to take on the now defunct Guitar Hero with some real guitar action.

Aimed at those looking to hone their guitaring skills and those picking up a guitar for the first time, Rocksmith is a revolution in music gaming, allowing players to plug any real electric axe into their Xbox 360, PS3 or PC/MAC.

It’s all down to the Real Tone Cable provided with the games, which lets you plug the quarter-inch jack into any axe and the USB plug to any USB port of the above-mentioned consoles or computers. The cable and software then transform the analogue signal of the guitar into a digital one that can be heard through TV speakers or stereo amps.

The game itself offers over 50 songs that can be tackled through “Guitarcade” mini-games which help users master fret shifts, chord changes and harmonics. A riff repeater will help you drill riffs until you can play them with your teeth.

The Rocksmith Guitar Bundle comes with the game, cable, picks, strap and a real Epiphone Les Paul Junior guitar (PS3 and Xbox 360: £135; PC: £125, play.com) or if you already have a guitar you can get the games from £35-£50 (play.com) and a Real Tone Cable for £18 (play.com).
