I’m sure people who had played Rocksmith 2014 on Xbox 360 are wondering if there are any major differences with the Xbox One Edition, because I know I had those same question. After playing the new edition, and doing my research I’ve found that the Xbox One Edition has the same core experience as the last Gen Console, except for the facts that the new edition is in 1080p, and seems to had fixed some calibration issues the 360 edition had. Another cool feature is that the Xbox One’s Kinect adds improved voice commands, so you don’t need to put down your guitar when navigating though the menu.
As far as songs go there are a total of 55 available at the start, and an additional 10 that you can unlock as you play the game. Furthermore, you can transfer all of your past purchases from the 360 edition, but unfortunately, you can not transfer your saved process from the 360 edition to the new Xbox One edition. Overall, that’s not a big deal since I will play theses songs over and over again anyway.
Multiplayer: It’s super fun to jam with your friends on Rocksmith. This game allows you to plug in two cords and play along with someone else. One player can play lead and the other can choose rhythm, but you can also plug in a bass as well, which is a great option.
I’m sure people are still wondering if they need to upgrade, and just know it’s totally your call, but right now both the PS4 and Xbox One versions are on sale for only 39.99 on Amazon. Furthermore, Rocksmith has said that they will continue to support the last console, but if you never played Rocksmith before then I highly recommend trying it. It’s great for first time guitar players and advance players. Rocksmith teaches you everything you need to know! All you need is a guitar, and time to practice.
