It’s no secret that I love Rocksmith. I own both the original Rocksmith and Rocksmith 2014 Edition on Xbox 360 and they both live on my TV cabinet, so I can access them a whole 1.5 seconds quicker than walking the extra 3 metres to my games shelf. It’s my opinion that Rocksmith and Rocksmith 2014 are two of the most underrated games of last generation and that everyonewith a passion for music or an interest in playing music shuold play them. Now, with that fanboy gushing out of the way, allow me to share some very exciting news from Ubisoft: Rocksmith 2014 is coming to current-gen consoles! This comes from the official press release:
“Today, Ubisoft® announced that Rocksmith® 2014 Edition will launch on Xbox One, the all-in-one video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system on November 6, 2014 in EMEA territories (Europe, Middle East and Asia).
