Summary: LAG MAKES THE GAME UNPLAYABLE. I did try (as recommended by manufacturer) HDMI for video only and a digital optical cable for the audio (through my Bose sound system). There is still too much lag to play. I visibly have to hit the string earlier so the system will recognize at the right time. If playing freely, I'll be playing the 3rd note when the system is recognizing (and playing) the LAG MAKES THE GAME UNPLAYABLE.
Summary: Rocksmith game is one the best games ever. Having the game and electro guitar you can start producing that wonderful sound which other could wait for years. It's not a teacher in a classical term or would never make you a guitar super star like Van Halen, but its lessons and method of teaching with your passion and love to guitar sound will definitely make the world the better place!
Summary: I'm sorry. I want to love this game. Input lag has ruined this experience for me. This is not just a little lag either, it's like one If you don't believe me, go look some reviews up before deciding to make a purchase. Unless you've got a pretty decent setup for your gaming already, good luck getting this going without a hefty down payment on the hardware required to play this game. Save I'm sorry. I want to love this game. Input lag has ruined this experience for me.
