A Real Freaking Guitar

Just because it bears repeating, you play this game with a REAL GUITAR. Ubisoft is selling Rocksmith in a $199.99 bundle with a Les Paul Epiphone electric guitar, which feels steep, until you consider that you once spent three bills on plastic guitars. And if you happen to have an electric sitting in a corner somewhere, this game will work with that, too.

Just think about that for 10 seconds. All those times you rocked out to Nirvana on an air guitar. And now, you can do it with a real one—and eventually sound good doing it. Yeah, that's music to our ears.
