Speaking of that LTD Viper 330, Amazon has it via Music 123 for $199.  Looks like it usually goes for $349-399.  I looked it up to see what it looked like, and hey, how 'bout that.  It's on sale.

That's what I paid for mine. It's a nice guitar. I just don't play much heavy stuff, so the jumbo frets are lost on me. That, and the influx of Fenders due to the Best Buy thing made this guitar the odd man out.

Steam version is currently $10 on Amazonhttp://www.amazon.co...w/d/B009GKT2W2/
Is this easily modded?

Bit on this & downloading now.  I've had the PS3 version since launch, so looking forward to playing with the Bass parts.  I hope it runs well on my laptop so I can take my practice on the road.  Any good deals on extra cables?

Curious how it downloaded; did it kick over to Steam or was it straight from amazon?

And "cable only" deals are pretty rare. Best to get one of the 360/ps3 versions on the cheap to have an extra cable. The old version of RS (aka the one without Bass content) got as low as $10-20, though couldn't tell ya if there are still any copies out there.

Of course, getting that Sams Club bundle would get ya another cable ;).

 

It downloaded & runs just fine on my laptop.  I always go straight to Steam, so no idea what the Amazon downloader would do.  My Sam's had 5 of the 360 bundles, but 0 for PS3, so no new guitar for me.  They did have the updated PS3 package with the Bass expansion & cable for $28, so I picked that up instead.  Anybody want a good deal on a gently used original guitar-only PS3 disc? \:D/

Another local Sam's Club had multiple copies of the new guitar bundle for both systems, now $59.81.  Incredible price.  They also had tons of copies of the first version of the game for $14.81, and the new version with bass for $19.81.  Literally several dozen copies, for both systems, both versions.  They must have cleared out the stockroom.  Great prices if you're looking for a spare cable.  Or, you know, a cheap guitar!

I'm pretty sure that's a "deal of the day" so jump on it now in the next hour or two if you want it!

 

Speaking of the new Rocksmith 2014, have they said, will it include bass support at release?

That's a great deal. I don't think the local Sam's have any Rocksmith. I'll have to check soon.

There are a few things I've been wondering about RS 2014. I know dlc is going to transfer, but how bout the original songs. Didn't the Rock Band games have some sort of unlock option for like $10 that would make all old song work with new versions?

I also want to know if Cherub Rock will be available for purchase or only as a preorder bonus. That will probably be the deciding factor on whether I preorder or wait for a sale. Oh why'd it have to be a Smashing Pumpkins song for the preorder bonus?

Closest I've heard is an Ubi rep saying that you'll wanna hold onto your og Rocksmith disc. Makes me think at worst we'll be disc swapping. But they could also come out and say there will be some sorta license transfer.

I'm still holding out hope for a secret WiiU version that combines the old with the new ;)

eBay vendor has the Xbox version with cable for sale used: "Game and cable are like new outer cardboard box is damaged" - $23.94 shipped.
 
The seller is in Canada, so shipping might be a little slow to the US. 9 items Left in stock at the time of writing.

Here's another One-Day-Only Sale, this time for the old version of Rocksmith (aka NO bass content)

Microsoft store has it for $19.49

http://www.microsoft...uctID.253725800

 

One of the few ways to get a cheap 2nd cable.  Think of it like getting a free coaster with your new cable. ;)

 

EDIT:  Forgot that the MS site likes to show stuff even when it's sold out... of course you don't know it's sold out until you click thru to the item page :roll:

Steam has the PC version for $7.49.  

 

Looks to be Guitar and Bass, but I'm not 100% certain on that.  

 

I already have the game for the 360, but am tempted to pick it up for the PC just for the Bass addon (if included.)

I got the guitar + game bundle at Sam's this week for $47.71. The clearance price sticker on the package was $59.71. That was good enough for me, but I was happy when it rang up for even less.

This was for the Xbox 360 version, but it was the only one left if any version that I could see. In case I'm wrong, the Sam's Club was the one on Bryant Irvin in Fort Worth, TX.

Rocksmith™ is the first and only game that you can plug into any real guitar or bass with a 1/4" output jack.

Oooh, thanks for this.  Just queue'd up Jessica and Tighten Up.  Already had the other two.

 

And looking at the DLC thru the in-game shop, I noticed that" More Than a Feeling" & "Smoke on the Water" are showing discounted prices of 120 & 160 msp.  But it tries to charge the regular 240 price if ya try to buy.  So those might show up on sale later; just hafta keep checking I guess

 

Anyway, I was thinking they might put all of the DLC on sale around the RS2014 launch.  That's what they did last year when the Bass version got released.

I figure we'll see some sales here soon.

 

I got to play last night after moving for 2 weeks... Felt nice to have a guitar in my hand again. Took my score on "Good Enough" from 71,000 to 97,000 in 2 play throughs last night. Made me feel pretty damn good.

 

I see there have been some sales on the Road Worn series over the past few weeks. I can't reccomend that series of fender strats and teles enough. The 50's Roadworn I bought from Best Buy is the only guitar I ever play now (and that's saying something, if you know my backstory on the guitars I've bought from BB over the last few months and the ones I already had)...

Interesting.. I might wait up on that. I really wanted to get some of the blues tracks like Thrill is Gone and Born Under a Bad Sign. I guess Jessica will have to do for now.

 

Speaking of Smoke on the Water, does that one still have a different solo? I remember when that was first released a lot of people were complaining about the solo.

This is what I saw on their website. Not sure if this is what rbarba4 was talking about. 

 

 

What about the on-disc songs from the original Rocksmith? Can I play those?

Rocksmith 2014 Edition will be backwards compatible! This means you’ll be able to play the on-disc songs from the original Rocksmith, so keep your copy around.

 

 

It seems like they give pretty clear answers on other questions, so hopefully they didn't forget to mention a fee.

It was the last one though, otherwise a cheap way to get an extra cable.

Just to follow-up on my previous post...

They did drop the price on "More than a Feeling" and "Smoke on the Water" to 160msp each.

DL'd them last night  and here are the links thru xbox.com (like I'd let the 4th pass by w/out a guitar in my hands :) )

Someone on the RS forums pointed out that these are the first 6 songs ever available as DLC.  So who knows maybe we'll see other songs pop up on sale as the weeks lead up to the new release (be a nice way to offset the no new DLC funk we're in right now).  Though it would suck for PS3 owners if Sony isn't matching the sale.
