26 Rocksmith

Ubisoft showed off their upcoming music-based rhythm game, Rocksmith, at this year’s SXSW event. The game that lets users plug in a real guitar into their consoles as opposed to plastic controllers with five different colored buttons. This way, players are doing more than just playing a game – they’re actually learning how to play songs as well.

The game is set to be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC in fall 2011 for $79.99. Ubisoft has announced some new tracks that will be featured in the game:

  • 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

In addition to the previously announced:

  • 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

With the music rhythm video game genre somewhat dead at the moment, can Ubisoft bring it back to life with Rocksmith?
