Rocksmith™ Real Tone Cable

The Rocksmith™ Real Tone Cable is not included with the purchase of Rocksmith™ on Steam and must be purchased separately. Please see your local retailer or many online stores to purchase the Rocksmith™ Real Tone Cable.

Rocksmith™ requires a unique 1/4"-t- USB cable, that is the first of its kind, which allows users to plug any real guitar with a quarter-inch jack directly into their console or PC.

Developed exclusively for Rocksmith™, this revolutionary cable turns the guitar's signal from analog to digital, allowing it to be recognized and played through video game consoles or PC for the first time.

The use of a second Rocksmith™ Real Tone Cable allows for simultaneous split-screen cooperative play while playing Rocksmith™.

Game is worth every and each cent.

You start as a begginer and fight through many difficulty levels to reach that point in your guitar carier when you know that you can play anything with some practise.

Additionally mini games included in a game will help you learn your instrument quick and in funniest way possible!

One con is that you need special cable for your instrument which isn't really expensive.

I enjoyed this game. Game can/will teach you how to play a real guitar. Most of the songs on this game are really old but some of the dlc adds modern day music which i wish were on the game. Its def worth getting but i have been told the newest one is totally worth its money

This game is great, and I would recommend it to everyone who wanna begin to learn guitar, there are some good classic song, which is really cool, and there is also some mini-games. And If you think there is not enough song, you can still download some user-made content, which makes the game more complete. As the steam store say, you should not digitaly buy the game, because a cable is required to plug your guitar to the computer. Except that, the game run smoothly and I highly recommend it ! ^^

This is a wonderful Game. It has something for everyone that likes to or wants to play Guitar. I have read many reviews and it seems like the thing people complain about most is what I call instant Gratifcation. This Game is a FUN way to learn or even just a Fun way to practice. But you still must practice, Playing Guitar or any other insturment for that matter will take practice. There is no such game or course that will have you playing as good as the guy in your favorite band in a matter of only a few hours. It does not exist. No Matter how you learn you gotta practice.
The best part about Rocksmith is that it takes that chore of practice and makes it something fun to do. I'm a 58 year old Rocker that decided to start playing again and using Rocksmith I am having a great time and learning a ton of stuff at the same time.

I'm still a bit hacked off that I HAD to buy original Rocksmith in order to accss older DLC content on Steam. That being said, after installing and playing the older Rocksmith and experiencing it's song selction I'm happy I did. I found a new in-box copy for PC on Ebay for just $12, so not so bad. I'm 52 and grew up on the likes of the Stones, Punk Rock, 80's, and even 90's tunage. Getting to play No Satisfaction by the Stones for my first song was a treat. The tutorials and videos for guitar newbs like myself are outstanding. In no time I will have the riff for Satisfaction down. I would highly recommend both Rocksmith versions for any beginner to moderately skilled guitar player. Great tool! After all these years my 4 guitars may actually see use instead of collecting dust! My goal is to use Rocksmith to improve enough to warrant the purchase of a Gibson Les Paul over my Epiphone I have now.
