Rocksmith, the game the first video game that actually teaches people how to play with a real guitar will be released in eleven days, and Ubisoft has released a new promo video for the game. Featuring professional video gamer, Fatal1ty, the video shows his progress in the game after spending three days with the game. Granted he didn’t make much of an improvement in that short period of time (which was odd since he claimed he used to play back in college), but it does show us more of the game which looks pretty good in my opinion.
However, Rocksmith doesn’t look like it’s going to be targeted at the casual gamer and will be more suitable for people with a real guitar and are keen on improving their skills by learning more songs. Will it be a commercial success? It’s hard to say, though I can see it being used as a teaching aide that music schools or instructors can give to their students. The fact that players can earn points is a good way for them to track their progress, which gives them a goal to work towards (beating a hi-score). Any of you planning to pick up this game when it is released on October 18th? Check out the Rocksmith promo video:
