Video Game That Plugs Into Real Guitar
- You can plug guitar into game
- Library include Nirvana and Rolling Stones
- Designed for those learning guitar
Ubisoft announced the development of Rocksmith, the first game where players can plug any real guitar with a standard quarter-inch input jack into an Xbox 360, PS3 or PC, and play through a 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.
“Rocksmith is the most authentic and addictive music game ever created,” claims Geoffroy Sardin, HQ Chief Marketing & Sales Officerat Ubisoft EMEA. “Whether a beginner or a seasoned guitar vet, players progress at their own speed and walk away from the game with the ability to play songs by memory. Rocksmith is the only video game that gets players stage ready.”
