The latest videogame pack-in bundle gives you… a real guitar


Rocksmith 2014 guitar bundle

Yes, you read that right.

Rocksmith, the game (tool?) that teaches you how to play songs on a real guitar, will be getting a new version later this month. There will be three Rocksmith 2014 bundles. Just the game, the game with the ‘real tone cable’ necessary to connect an electric guitar, and – exclusively at Amazon in the UK – the game, the real tone cable… and a guitar. An Epiphone Les Paul Junior, to be exact. The proverbial cherry on top is a little sprinkle of DLC included in the guitar bundle, which adds the following six songs:

Chicago – 25 Or 6 To 4

Albert King – The Sky Is Crying

The Hives – Hate To Say I Told You So

The Lumineers – Ho Hey

Them Crooked Vultures – Mind Eraser, No Chaser

Queens Of The Stone Age – My God Is The Sun

At time of writing, Amazon UK lists the 360 and PC guitar bundles at £121.97; confusingly, the PS3 version is 15p more expensive at £122.12. You get over forty songs on the disc whichever version you buy, including ‘Paint It Black’ by pouttastic pensioners the Rolling Stones, ‘No More Mr. Nice Guy’ by makeup-loving pensioner Alice Cooper, ‘Heart Shaped Box’ by not-quite-milked-dry-by-record-companies-yet nineties grunge kings Nirvana, and ‘Thunder Kiss ’65’ by metal maestros White Zombie, whose career spanned all of two (official) studio albums. There’s also a Def Leppard song, should your pickup selector switch swing that way.

Rocksmith 2014 assaults the eardrums of neighbours all over the UK from 25th October.
