Rocksmith. A game that lets you plug in your actual guitar and play along with the game. Move over Rock Band & Guitar Hero….we may have a new music game that will actually let us play “real” music.
About Rocksmith (from IGN.com):
Rocksmith is a music game based around the use of a real guitar — players can plug any real guitar with a standard quarter-inch input jack into their game system and play through an in-depth library of music including everything from the latest hits to classic rock songs. Featuring gameplay that automatically adjusts to the player’s skill level and innovative game design that makes reading music visually fun and intuitive, Rocksmith engages experienced musicians and those who are picking up a guitar for the first time. The game includes a sizeable library of music from classic rock bands to current artists, such as The Animals, The Black Keys, David Bowie, Interpol, Nirvana and The Rolling Stones.
