Rocksmith, the guitar game that teaches you proper guitar, is hitting the UK September 14th.

Releasing first for PlayStation 3, with PC/Mac and Xbox 360 versions coming later, the title lets you plug in a real electric guitar into your console via an adaptable USB jack, and learn how to play as well as read music.

The game comes packaged with over fifty tracks from Blur, Velvet Revolver and the Rolling Stones, and a selection of mini-game-style training exercises will allow you to break down and concentrate on separate sections.

A Epiphone Les Paul Junior guitar bundle will be released come launch. No price point as been given yet.

You can check out the first screens after the initial run down of some of the songs that'll appear in the game.

REVIEW. Written by Jonas Elfving

"Being able to plug in a proper electric guitar, instead of playing around with colourful plastic buttons, is a step in the right direction."



PREVIEW. Written by Jonas Elfving

"Ubisoft's goal with Rocksmith is far from the party genre and multiplayer nights with friends. The idea is to learn the guitar, and nothing else."
