Never considered buying it but a lot of people hyped it on SA. Maybe they blew all their money on paying Slash to market it. Rocksmith's marketing is piss poor by any standards but I guess theirs was even worse. If Rocksmith had some solid marketing strategy, they could attract soo many new player to guitar it's not even funny.


>piss poor


Yeah, maybe you don't watch TV or look at YouTube?



Sorry bro, I didn't realise you did their marketing. Congrats on the job though.

They sold 1.4M copies of 2012, and about 1M copies of 2014.  They also said they were disappointed in the sales, which I find rather surprising.  "Rhythm" games were supposed to be all but dead.  I don't think you can reasonably expect to sell 10M copies of Rocksmith when worldwide guitar sales are on the order of 1.5M/year.


Plus as I noted earlier, 2014 is more of a teaching tool, and it's good at it. Only problem is I just wanna have fun, not take lessons, so I didn't buy it.

b03bber - I like your description of RS focusing on the fret hand vs. BS focusing on the pick hand.  Never thought of it quite like that.  I had hopes for both, initially, but the RS interface was so much more intuitive for me.  Probably due to all the RB I played.


BTW, two major reasons for upgrading to RS2014 (if you don't want/need all the lessons or session mode) are the ability to set the difficulty level of the song wherever you want it from the beginning, and all the amazing new cdlc that this site is cranking out.  I hated having to level up a song in RS2012 or forcing a guest to do so when they came over to play.  No crowd to play to, but it's straight to the music - no waiting to level up a song.  That alone was worth the money.

 picked up a copy for $18 and have played with it a little bit.  Its better tan I thought it would be and I like the Hendrix tunes, but I'm disappointed that there won't be future DLC.  I hope someone buys the assets with intention of providing support and releasing more DLC.  Never hurts to have competition.
