Rocksmith. What an awesome bit of software that is. As great as plastic instruments are, nothing really beats getting a real guitar and playing along to some brilliant tunes, and as we mentioned in our review a little while back (over here if you missed it) it gives that little bit extra to musicians and beginners alike.
So we were pretty chuffed to learn that Ubisoft were bringing the guitar-em-up (it’ll catch on) to the new generation of consoles, and the best bit is we won’t have to wait long either. The full release will be on November the 7th. That’s soon! The only weird part is it’ll be exclusive to Amazon (in the UK at least) so don’t expect to see it sat on the shelves of your nearest game shop.

Players will be able to use integrated streaming and capture features on the One and PS4 to record and share their best performances as well as show off their favourite custom tones from Tone Designer. Rocksmith 2014 Edition is better than ever with 1080p HD graphics for greater clarity and visual quality.
On PlayStation 4, Rocksmith 2014 Edition will support Remote Play through the Vita where players can view songs at a locked mastery level without any scoring or input required; this mode is perfect for players looking to review a song in its entirety without feedback, study specific sections of songs or practice in another room when it’s more convenient.
Rocksmith 2014 Edition comes with more than 50 tracks; there are currently more than 300 additional songs available for purchase, with new add-on content every week. For players making the jump to the latest consoles, DLC tracks can be imported across systems, from Xbox 360 to Xbox One and PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4 without having to repurchase content or pay additional licensing costs.
