Right now it doesn't look like it's gonna happen unless they sneak it into the sale later.
Really hate when they don't preview all the sale items. Caused me to miss out on more than one deal.



Nice find. Probably YMMV but still worth it to see if your local Sams dropped the price. I'll update the OP


Where would the OP have gotten that information? I don't see any post on it anywhere. I want to buy it, a good deal will sell me tonight!

Put it in the OP as a heads up to check Amazon GB, since the deals were not known then. That's why I worded it that way

Right now best deal is TRU. But that ad only seems good on the xbox version

Does anyone know if the Megadeth songs and Freebird have the solos transcribed in them or is it all rhythm guitar?

Well, crap. Trailers hiding as DLC packs.

FREE DLC PACK ALERT!

I'm pretty sure these go for 640 MS Points each, but just checked the Xbox site and noticed these are all listed as FREE. Probably a mistake and won't last long.

Rock Hits 1

Rock Hits 2

Rock Hits 70s

If those links don't work, just do a standard search on Xbox.com for "Rocksmith" and you should see the packs lined up.


holy crap! thanks for posting this.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Wow, that's a great pack to have. Freebird by Lynyrd Skynyrd, Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple, More Than a Feeling by Boston, and Jessica by The Allman Brothers for free is a steal! Not to mention musically educational! ;) I really hope all of you guys stick with it, not just for the game, but to really see how much joy playing the guitar (or any other musical instrument) will bring enrichment into your lives and to those around you!!! \m/ :D

To be honest guys...your enthusiasm over all this has solidified my want for getting Rocksmith myself...I now just need a decent deal.

I know I'm a little over-enthusiatic about RS, but I can't help it. This mashup of learning guitar and video games feels so right to me. Would never had put in as many hours as I have if this were a traditional learning method.

Its got me spending more time on guitar sites than CAG. Even making a mental list of models I'd like to try out or own:drool:

I personally think RS is a great idea towards leaning and inching the GH and Rock Band crowd a bit further...at least those that are more inclined towards learning guitar in a more traditional fashion but wihile still maintaining a modern game design. But make no mistake, traditional methods will always remain a vital formula in some form or another.

For instance, it may not require everyone to be educated in traditional music theory. For most, guitar tab education will suffice.

Then again, there will be others that can learn by ear alone...impassioned by methodically learning by diligent practice and repetition. By learning from others--satiated only until perfection is reached. This is the category I fell in since I was young. I cared about only two things in life....my art and guitar. And it was more than just learning chords, scales, and arpeggios. It was about feeling right while playing. If it felt right...it would only then sound right.

Fuck guys...I honestly couldn't imagine living in a world without music. That's the purest way I can put it.

I've been bamboozled! Well I had already decided to DL the RS songs after I worked my way thru the current playlists.

But I may dl Jessica right away. Wouldn't mind knowing how to play the Top Gear opening song;)

Didn't mean to imply that RS is better than other learning methods. But rather that this method hit the mark for me at this point in my life. It does a good job of keeping me engaged and wanting to push thru the roadblocks. Although this would have been amazing on the Atari 2600.:lol:

Funny thing about GH/RB was that I hit the wall at a fairly low level. Somewhere between Medium and Hard. I recognized that I could improve but wouldn't do it. There was no way in hell that I was going to put in the hours to max my skills on a fake guitar. So I stuck to having fun

I LOVE the look of the Dean Dimebag, but I don't think my wife would like to see my buy a second guitar this quickly, since I just bought my first when I bought Rocksmith.

Not a post to brag, but got 190,000 on the master mode for 'Next Girl' on my first attempt. It felt so damn awesome to actually play a song and not see the notes on the screen but feel like I knew what I had to do and then see that I actually did ok. Listening to my rendition after, it wasn't perfect by any means, nor would I expect that it would have been, but considering I had never played a guitar until 3 weeks ago, it was cool to feel like I'm learning how to play.

Just thought I would share that.

That's pretty cool. I took a different approach and kinda let RS take me for a ride. I can tell that I've improved greatly. But also know where I need alot of work. Basically suck at fast fret work; moving from string to string. Which means I also suck at fast chord changes. Just gotta put in more time

EDIT: oh, forgot to mention that I played a 6 song event last night. Did well enough for the Encore which was Good Enough. Let's just say that by the end of the song it was clear i wasn't good enough. Ah Rocksmith, nut puncher extraordinaire

Yeah, thought that lefty model would help some out, since LH guitars are usually priced higher. I'm guessing the sale has been pretty good because the number of available guitars has gone down since I first posted about it.

And if you'd rather have an Acoustic-electric, here's a link to the same sale for the a/e models. Not too many to choose from.

Just a reminder that the Bestbuy and TRU sales end today, 12/17.

And you can try to make the Amazon RS deal or the guitar deals a little better by following the instructions in this other thread.

Thanks. OP updated.

And Amazon is still holding at $59.99. Now to see if they keep it that way all week, to match BB's sale
No new guitar sales.

No idea why they created videos for Rock Packs, but then didn't release them in packs.

Just about to fire up the holiday one to see how that works.

Best Buy decided to toss a few guitars into their one-day sale. Not much to choose from but maybe it's right for someone:
http://www.bestbuy.c...r&pt=1324533601

And wanted to update the Amazon 50%off guitar sale since they've changed out a bunch of models. Couple of new highlights from the sale are:

Schecter Damien S.E. in red @ 295 http://www.amazon.co...24630358&sr=1-4
Dean ML in Trans Brazilburst @ 129 http://www.amazon.co...4630524&sr=1-27
Schecter Omen 6 in white @ 225 http://www.amazon.co...4630358&sr=1-17

Like before dig thru and see if you like anything. They also have a few acoustice electrics included in the sale.
Link to all guitars in sale: http://www.amazon.co...&qid=1324630604

And Amazon also has accessories on sale. Good if you need picks, strings, straps or cases/bags.
http://www.amazon.co...f_rd_i=11091801

Nothing new on Rocksmith deals. Amazon and Best Buy are still on sale @ $59.99 (BB sale is good in-store or online).

And in case you missed the post a bit back, remember to download the free Holiday DLC.
