Rocksmith 2014 Edition

PlayStation 4 & Xbox One

Release date: November 4, 2014

How many songs are included with Rocksmith 2014? The game has the same original 55 songs as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, but also includes 10 more songs that you can unlock by achieving goals.

Are DLC songs transferrable? Yes, but only PS3- PS4 and Xbox 360 - Xbox One. However, the additinal good news is that if you bought the Import Pack for the original game, you'll also be able to port those (but again with the same console to console restrictions.

Can I buy original Rocksmith songs? Yes.

Do I need to buy a Rocksmith Real Tone Cable? If you don't have one, then yes. If you have a cable from an older copy of the game, that will work with the PS4 and Xbox One versions, which'll save you $20.

So what's actually new>? The game is largely the same as last year's version. However, the game has had a graphical upgrade, so everything is in 1080p. The PS4 version also supports remote play.

We're expecting to get Rocksmith 2014 in a few weeks, and will do a similar multi-week review to what we did last year.

Rocksmith 2014 is a very impressive guitar learning experience. Its comprehensive suite of lessons and practice formats, fun mini-games and hugely entertaining Session Mode make it suitable for anyone, from novices who've never picked up a guitar to competent players looking to improve their technique.
