Rocksmith trailer

Rocksmith is a new game from Ubisoft that aims to upgrade from the plastic peripherals of Rock Band and Guitar Hero to real guitars. The video above doesn’t really explain this but you can actually plug any real electric guitar into the game using the USB cord with 1/4-inch jack. The game is supposed to come with 50 songs including ones from Nirvana, The Cure, and The Rolling Stones, to name a few. Looks like this may be the first video game that can actually teach users how to play the guitar.

Rocksmith is due out on October 11th, 2011 for PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.
