Rocksmith Guitar Bundle Announced

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
When Ubisoft announced Rocksmith back in March, they stated at the time that they hoped to have a bundle available for the title that included an actual guitar, though they hadn't worked out the details just yet.

Today, Ubisoft announced that such a deal has been struck and, come the game's fall release, players will have two purchase options for Rocksmith. Option one will be the standard edition of the game, which will retail for $79.99. Why the higher-than-normal price? That's because it includes the Rocksmith Real Tone Cable, a "unique 1/4-to-USB cable... developed exclusively for Rocksmith [which] converts the guitar's signal from analog to digital, allowing it to be recognized and played through video game consoles and Windows PC".

Option two is the $199.99 Epiphone Les Paul Junior guitar bundle. Along with the cable and the game, this bundle, obviously, comes complete with a guitar.
