Summary: It is a shame that such a promising game is fraught with problems for the PC version. My experience is primarily with faulty cables, so far three out of three don't work, but hey they suckered me into getting them !! In addition to the cable issue, it seems many are having other issues with notes being dropped and having to reinstall the game frequently. You should not have to be a programmer to get this game to work.
Summary: Behold, we have a game which I already have on PS3 and I thought it would be nice to run also on my PC. After reviewing the operating system requirements, which included Windows Vista, I figured it would be safe. After the purchase I found out that I needed to download Steam, which is a third party holder of this software. After installing the game my troubles began, My computer froze up, became extremely slow and the game would not work at all.
Summary: I would not recommend buying the PC version of this game. No matter how much effort I put into fixing the lag issue, or how many system upgrades, it still is more laggy that you could ever imagine. Extremely frustrating for someone who knows how to play the guitar. If you're just getting it as an interactive Tab display, maybe you'll like it, but it's impossible to play along.
Summary: If you want to throw money away I'll send you my address. Do not buy this. First, you will need to also install "Stream" - great more crap on my computer. Second, no product support. - Ubisoft is now working on their next Rocksmith and have no interest in old software anymore. Third, IT most likely not work on your computer. Fourth, You will be out money.
Summary: Was hoping to get into the game immediately after getting the cable. Unfortunately it wasn't being picked up by my PS3. To make sure if it was the cable or not I installed the demo version for the PC but when I plugged in the cable it wasn't even recognized by my PC (Win 7 x64). :/ first electronic/peripheral I've purchased on Amazon that turned out to be a lemon.
Summary: Have you ever played a guitar on a live amp with direct cable hookup or even a short range wireless system? If so you know what response time is and why its so critical to how you hear the tone and notes as you're playing. If you like having a delay between the note you play and the sound you hear then you might enjoy this product and its software. Good concept but needs major refinement. Anyone considering this should look into the Ampkit by Peavey.
Summary: First let me say, I am very knowledgeable in MIDI class devices, music synthesis, live input and annotation software. Buying this was a mistake. First, it requires a Steam account. Working with that was very frustrating. Poorly designed and supported. Servers that download at 1/1oth the speed of Amazon's. A bad joke. The the software doesn't work.
