There is a void in the music genre as Activision put their Guitar Hero franchise on ice and Ubisoft looks ready to pick up the slacks with Rocksmith. A game that will be played with a real electric guitar and takes a serious approach to the subject wanting to teach players who to master the guitar. Tracks include songs by The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Animals and others.
"Guitar Hero is a party game. Rocksmith is a music experience," says Ubisoft's Tony Key. Sounds like more of a challenger to Rock Band 3 then, perhaps?
