New Tracks Unveiled For Rocksmith

If you aren’t aware, Rocksmith is going to be the first and only video game that plugs into and uses a real guitar. Yes, you can literally plug it straight into your guitar and it works in game, which is fantastic for musicians that don’t want those plastic guitars lying around the house, that’s so 2010.

Unfortunately you will actually need some skill on “real” guitar to play this game, and with a setlist like the one below, you’ll wish that you could play. Check it out:

•       Best Coast – When I’m With You
•       Blur – Song 2
•       The Black Keys – Next Girl
•       The Boxer Rebellion – Step Out Of The Car
•       Cream – Sunshine Of Your Love
•       The Cribs – We Share The Same Skies
•       The Cure – Boys Don’t Cry
•       Jenny O – Well OK Honey
•       Lynyrd Skynyrd – Sweet Home Alabama
•       Nirvana – Breed
•       Pixies – Where Is My Mind?
•       Radiohead – High and Dry
•       Red Fang – Number Thirteen
•       The Rolling Stones – The Spider and the Fly
•       Silversun Pickups – Panic Switch
•       Soundgarden – Outshined
•       Spoon – Me and The Bean
•       Stone Temple Pilots – Vasoline
•       Taddy Porter – Mean Bitch
•       Titus Andronicus – A More Perfect Union
•       White Denim – Burnished
•       The White Stripes – Icky Thump
•       Yellow Moon Band – Chimney

This is including the already announced songs:

•       The Animals – House of the Rising Sun
•       The Black Keys – I Got Mine
•       David Bowie – Rebel Rebel
•       Interpol – Slow Hands
•       Nirvana – In Bloom
•       The Rolling Stones – (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction

The game automatically adjusts to the players skills and will be fun for skilled musicians or those picking up a guitar for the first time.

Rocksmith is slated to be released in Fall 2011 for $79.99, including a unique quarter-inch to USB cable allowing users to plug any real guitar with a quarter-inch jack into their Xbox 360, PS3 or PC.

  • I’m curious as to how much they will charge for dlc. I’m disappointed that Harmonix tacks on extra $ for pro guitar tracks, so if Rocksmith wants my business, they better keep the dlc tracks cheap.
