Rather pointless having a demo that requires you to have a special cable! Do not waste time downloading this unless you are prepared to buy the cable.

This review would not be negative if one wasn't required to spend money on the proprietary cable in order to try a DEMO. The purpose of a DEMO is to allow someone to try something before spending money. In this respect, this DEMO utterly fails in it's purpose. Who would try this other than someone without the cable? Seroiusly? If you already have the cable it implies that you already own the game on another platform. If you already have the game on another platform, why would you want to try a DEMO - you have already played the full game. If it were not for the requirement for the hardware key (cable) my review would have been positive because this game is awesome in all other respects.

I have RS2014 for the PS4 and my guitar and cable worked extremely well on RS for steam. Disregard the reviews for people who don't have the cable. What did they expect? How can they even leave a review if they haven't even played the game? Go and get the cable and then try this demo out for yourself. You can get your money back if you don't like it. Two weeks ago I had never played an instrument, and right now I have played this guitar so much that my finger tips feel like hamburger. I can't stop playing! I would get this game prior to getting RS2014. Even though it's slightly annoying how RS seems to be more controlling and slows your learning pace, I actually appreciate being slowed down. In RS2014 I always seem to be floundering, always being challenged with stuff I'm not ready for whereas this game is better on the confidence.

This Demo requires you to have the proprietary cable just to try it. This is ridiculous. I already have 2 very nice USB interfaces that I use for recording guitar and microphone that I SHOULD BE ABLE TO USE instead of going out to buy yet another stupid interface. I only wanted to check the latency in order to judge whether to get the full version of the game but I am now decided. I will not purchase the full version if I have to buy this dumb cable.

No playing without special Cable Hardware !
this is a NO GO i think, I download the Demo version just to test the game und have to buy the cabel for about 30 € ??? the idea of demo is totaly gone. If you owen the firt rocksmith and you already had a cable, you dont need the demo version because you know the game is good. But If you wanna try the game bacause you own a Guitar, the cable is a must ? no no no this is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t ! i maybe pay 2,99 for a Demoversion but not 30 € to ran JUST a demoversion. it kills the idea of Demo. pls Ubisoft think about, Demo with just mircophone or line In

One of my room mates conveniently has a guitar and the proper cable and just never used them, so here I am! I actually feel like I'm learning how to play the guitar as opposed to "This is a chord. Play it!" which is what I encountered before. Ducks is fun and I think I'm actually learning which fret is which, albeit slowly.

And Red Fang is friggin' AWESOME.

Trying the demo to decide if i want to invest in the game but apparantly you MUST have the Rocksmith Realtone cable or it won't work. I have a jack to usb cable that i use with GarageBand but can't get past the strum. On the upside it only took about 1.5 hours to download.

if you want to get the full or 2014 version try this first you will need a cable($30-$40) or some downoadable software off google(free) and a guitar or bass of course. if you dont like it then you might have better luck with tabs or some other method but this is probably the easiest way to learn electric guitar or bass.(yes you read it BASS GUITAR)
