Just wondering if anyone else has tried out the new Rocksmith game which came out a couple of weeks ago? (playstation, xbox etc). It's kind of like guitar hero (which I tried once and didn't like at all), but instead of playing a toy plastic guitar with buttons you plug in a real guitar and attempt to play along with a song. It detects whether you're hitting the right notes and adjusts the difficultly on the fly. this is one of the better youtube vids that explains how it all works [ame=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u_6CY4ntJQ]Rocksmith Video Preview - YouTube[/ame] I got it a few days ago and I'm quite impressed. I'm not sure how long the novelty will last, but at the moment it's giving me another excuse to fire up the guitar and rock out in the lounge room. I've hacked away at guitar for a few years at can play a little, so i think it helps makes this game fun from the start. I'm not sure how long an absolute beginner would last before they gave up in frustration. I guess the number of used games selling on ebay in a few weeks/months will be a good gauge of that.
