The Rocksmith Real Tone Cable is not included with the purchase of Rocksmith on Steam and must be purchased separately.
Rocksmith requires a unique 1/4"-t- USB cable, that is the first of its kind, which allows users to plug any real guitar with a quarter-inch jack directly into their console or PC.
Developed exclusively for Rocksmith, this revolutionary cable turns the guitar's signal from analogue to digital, allowing it to be recognized and played through video game consoles or PC for the first time.
The use of a second Rocksmith Real Tone Cable allows for simultaneous split-screen cooperative play while playing Rocksmith.
Rocksmith is the first and only game that you can plug into any real guitar or bass with a 1/4" output jack.
Nothing plastic, nothing fake, just the most authentic and complete guitar experience in music gaming. By plugging into your PC, you’ll develop real skills and real styles while playing absolutely real music. Featuring gameplay that automatically adjusts to your personal ability, Rocksmith’s innovative game design makes playing music visually intuitive and will engage experienced musicians as well as those who have never picked up a guitar in their lives.
Unlock mini-games to hone specific skills. You’ll also be able to choose from a large catalogue of songs in different styles. You’ll experience it all with an honest-to-goodness guitar or bass. Nothing compares to playing a real instrument.
