Rocksmith. Coming this fall…

Ubitsoft’s New Rocksmith Game to Let Players Use Any Real Electric Gutar…

An interesting point that’s just thrown out there in this Hollywood Reporter article about the game is this:  “Another Guitar Hero killer was the cost to license music.

Hmmm. How much do you want to bet that as the game became more popular, the cost of licensing the music skyrocketed?

    Yeah, I was waiting for Guitar Rising for more than a year after it’s announced release date. But I finally gave up on it.
