Summary: I got this cable back in January and its still kicking. High quality (if used right). For all the people who go a few weeks and have to replace the cable its usually not because the cable was faulty, but instead you were "pushing its limits". To fix this issue follow the following instructions.
Summary: The Rocksmith line of games/software is great! I have never played guitar before and the universal realtone cable is great for both my XBox 360 and my PC! Downloading additional songs within the software is easy and the automatic progression based on skill really helps a person strive to get better! I have been rocking to Outshined by Soundgarden on a daily basis!
Not a magic pill toward becoming a pro musician, but the best learning tool there is!

Summary: I've been TRYING to learn how to play the guitar for the past ten years... yeah, I'm persistent... but it was such slow going. No matter what I did (learning to read tabs, taking lessons, etc.). Nothing helped. Then my wife bought me Rocksmith for Christmas. Getting used to synching my playing with the graphics took some time, but I'm gradually getting there. This was the best Christmas gift that I've ever received!
Summary: I play almost every evening. No more hunting through papers. No more messing with buttons to get the tone you want. There are lots of songs and more all the time. If you don't know a section the riff repeater really helps. You can slow the section down and learn it. If you have a good cable / high speed connection the download does not take that long. I already had a cable. (You need a special one for the game.) The cable is the same for bothrRocksmith versions.
Summary: Just started learning how to play guitar and Rocksmith takes away most of the drudgery. Unlike when i took piano and cello lessons as a kid, I actually look forward to practicing with Rocksmith, and will literally play until my fingers hurt.
