PC Version of Rocksmith Delayed (May 2012?)

In completely unsurprising news @NaoHigo producer of Rocksmith posted on Rocksmith’s Facebook page that the PC version is most definitely being delayed, as for how long “The current plan is to have the PC version ready in May.” This is especially bad news for Xbox owners outside of North America as the PC version (which was expected to be released December 13th, 2011) was there last hope of playing the game on their console before the non-existen Europe release date.

As you can see, development seems to be very much geared towards DLC and patching many of the complaints being voiced about the current incarnation of Rocksmith.

How do you feel about this decision? Should they be focusing on pleasing the non-console owners or is supporting their install base with new content and solutions to their problems a more prudent issue. Let us know in the comments below and be sure to come back tommorow for December 13th’s DLC announcement which may have that heavy music you kids want.

I have already attempted to teach myself how to play the guitar and haven't had much luck. I've tried the tabs and videos on youtube. I don't want this game to make me a -great- guitarist. I want it to help teach me how to play. Great depends upon natural talent and the amount of time I'm willing to put into practice. It's a -teaching- game. I am interested in the teaching aspect, not the game. I don't play games. Care to come and check out what is on my computer to verify that you don't know WTF you are… Read more »

Yes. Seriously. And again, yes you can buy the cable separately. "so unless you are a developer don’t act like you know what you are talking about when it comes to development…" I am a developer and do know what I am talking about…. The game has already been made for xbox 360; which is amazingly easy (comparatively) to port back to PC given that its XNA. So don't pose as a developer when you are obviously not (by your own statements). AND the pc version has now been delayed until October…. ugghhh. I still play the xbox360 version and… Read more »

Quit Complaining People!!!!!!!!

The marketing people at this company are totally out to lunch. They are comparing their product to games that use Toy guitars with coloured buttons and thinking the consoles are where it is at. Meanwhile there are no guitarists out there using their PS3/XBox for digital recording, etc. Most guitarists were interacting on their PC or MAC before knowing about this game. I've been playing guitar for years and feel out of practice. I thought this would be a great tool for playing at home after work. Multiple PC release delays and focusing on the console market? And did you… Read more »

Don't get me wrong i like rocksmith on my xbox 360 but there are many errors that i would like to address first is the lag on the playback it sounds like you missed every note of the song if you play it good when you listen to it it sounds awful. Second theres no owners manual so if you don't know what is what you don't know what to do. Third is the amp mode which i still haven't figured out. I am an experienced guitarist of 26 years and can do what it requires in the playing catagory… Read more »

They didn't say they were focusing on making new download content. They said they're focusing on issues WITH the download content. They need to update the game. If it had been released for the pc, that version would have just as many issues. They're taking care of bugs and whatnot for ALL versions, so when the PC version is released, all the milkdrinkers who think they're too good for a console don't complain so much when they actually do get to play it. If it's such a big deal, why don't you just try learning to play the old fashioned… Read more »

Milkdrinkers = 35+ year-old's that don't live with their parents and smoke dope.

You = idiot

Fact.

This game was purchased as a PC game and was ported to consoles. The disappointment is understandable. Your indignation is not. I for one am learning the old-fashioned way, but would still like to play this game on a PC for less than $85.

I found out about Rocksmith about the same time I was looking for an amplifier. Instead of the amp, I bought a Line 6 Pocket Pod. It cost $130.00, and 20 bucks for a power transformer, as the batteries tend to die quickly. I found a working transformer (must buy one with the same specifications) for 3 bucks at a science store near me, brand new. You can plug headphones into it, or connect it with a line to the PC, as I've done. No, it's not a game, it's just a portable headphone amplifier. It has a very nice… Read more »

You totally missed the point here, we are talking about a game for learning guitar and you talk about an amplifier simulator made for playing guitar but will be no help at all at learning to play. Adding that for roughly the same amount of money you can also take a DI box for impedance adaptation between your guitar and your PC and a software like WavesGTR, Overloud TH2, etc … to have far better tones, and with far more customization possibilities, than those Line6 things are able to do.(i've tried some of these and never been convinced by these… Read more »

I'm not missing any point. I check the stores every day, and Rocksmith for windows is still not there. Meanwhile, I'm having fun, and I'm learning. You don't need rocksmith to learn, you need to play to learn. I'm reading that people bought guitars for rocksmith, and the guitars are sitting around waiting for it. I'm saying "don't wait". Oh, did I mention that I'm learning without rocksmith?

Adrian

PC version will probably be released at the same time as it reaches consoles in Europe. This will stop all of the people in EU just importing a cable from the US and downloading the game from a torrent site to play on PC region free. This way Ubisoft make a lot more money from the console audience in EU and don't loose as much to piracy.

DaveB
Guest

Or it will make first time enthusiast peoples, which had pre order the game for most of them, become frustrated and change their mind about buying or not the game.

This could end up with lot of these peoples turning themselves on piracy because they don't want to give a cent to a company that have fooled them up.

Why the hell do game developers do this. There needs to be an open source gaming language which is cross platform compatible then if Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo want to have the game for their system they take their own devs and work out porting it. That way the game is in the public's hands faster, is less expensive for the game developer and exclusive only if the game sucks bad enough that the developers of these systems deem it not profitable enough to port it themselves. Plus the community can help update the code to make it more efficient… Read more »

Disappointing 🙁 I was looking forward to playing this game but I guess Ubisoft thought that only console users should be able to learn guitar. The idea that consoles are the best platforms for new releases is ridiculous. They would have reached far more people (including the console users) if they would have focused on just the PC and maybe had less bugs to troubleshoot as well since the whole team could have focused on the one platform instead of two. This is what happens when you leave critical decisions about software design in the hands of management/marketing instead of… Read more »

I preordered my copy of Rocksmith for PC back in November from bestbuy.com. On Dec 11 I got an email from Best Buy that my package would be ready to pick up in two days. So, two days later I went to the store to pick up my Rocksmith. They looked it up in the computer. According to their system the package had arrived. So they looked all over the place but could not find it. Finally they figured out that the software was never released and that it is delayed. What could I do? The bestbuy.com system screwed this… Read more »

I just finished reading an article about another UBISOFT game that doesn't look like it's coming out for the PC.

Stanislas Mettra Creative director for "I AM ALIVE" is quoted as saying

"We’ve heard loud and clear that PC gamers are bitching about there being no version for them," said Mettra.

"But are these people just making noise just because there’s no version or because it’s a game they actually want to play? Would they buy it if we made it?"

Hopefully Rocksmith's creators take a different attitude.

Rocksmith is going ot chrun out awful sloppy players left and right. Sure, you may 100% a song, then go play through a real amplifier to find that you play and sound like crap!

Elliott

Yes and once you realize you play and sound like crap you practice until you don't.

Then you find out it is extremely difficult to undo sloppy technique that set in to your muscle memory. You should have learned the right way from the get go, so you stay sloppy.

Or better yet, for those of you that bought guitars but don't have a game yet -- invest your $80 in an amplifier and find some free lessons on youtube or the Guitar Tricks website. While there is no scoring system for the lessons, they are fun to play along with and you might even learn to craft a song or two song of your own.

Grrrr. Hire more devs dangit!! Iv been waitin years for this! I dont want to but a consol and im not going to. I guess its just a matter of time till others come out with similar games. Probably will be better also.

@ jo user, I agree with jo. I have amplitube 3. No lag ( I did download aso4all ( something like that) audio driver) gets rid of latency issues!!
I also have various amp modeling software for my iPhone ( ishread, ampkit, amplitude, jam up) Witch is all software . No lag whatsoever!!
Was looking forward to rocksmith. Sure it won't be long before other company's release similar games.
Happy new year..

Having just received my "receipt" for Christmas that my wife bought at Gamestop (who said it would release in January), I am completely hacked off about this. I, like many others, use software with my guitar through my PC. I don't want to move from the room I play guitar in and into the living room where the Xbox is hooked up. I will be getting my money back on the pre-order from Gamestop and I will not be buying any Ubisoft products in the future.

May of 2012 suggests that they haven't even started on it yet.
That's a pretty major letdown to be sure. It's one thing to have a delay, but quite another to arbitrarily ignore the platform. With xbox 720 coming out in 2012 (don't buy a 360 now) it's probably best for pc users to consider it vaporware and look for something else. Maybe Guitar Pro has some new improvements in the works.

joe user
Guest

no surprise here. UBI, EA, and the others do not want to pay developers to work on 3 or 4 or more platforms. the lower the number of platforms the higher their profit margins. its simple economic douchbagery.

Not enough pre-orders for PC = management saying "we didnt hit the PC version pre-order quota so eff those PC guys and get to work on the console versions that were far from polished on initial release"

If they get enough blow back they may yet release a PC version, but i sure wont be holding my breath.

following up. the publishers need to realize this isnt just another FPS war game for the ages 16-35 market. This game has the potential to reach a HUGE number of people, young and old, who simply want to learn guitar and who may not necessarily own a gaming console. Most homes in America have a computer capable of playing a basic 3d game (no not crysis, but maybe quake3 or call of duty 2). These users want to learn guitar but do not want to buy a console to do so, especially when they were promised from the beginning that… Read more »

Oh snap! I was planning on getting the PC version from the "alternate market" and getting the USB cable from best buy or amazon. This wrecks my well-crafted plan! The way I see it, provably a whole lot of people thought the same (obviously). I'll entertain some speculation and say that maybe the boys from Ubi figured this out as well, that the PC version would be stolen as heck and only thing they would sell for PC would be USB cables and discount versions a year from now.

Avery

If you are willing to pay for a guitar, cable, the GAME and those accessories then just learn on your own. There is plenty of tabs and videos on youtube to boot. The game is not going to make you a great guitarist. It will help on some things but not what everyone is thinking. So if everyone owns a computer then thats all you need. Of course a guitar too. Furthermore its a GAME, so all those people that say they don't play games is lying.

Have to agree that Ubisoft's decisions have always been strange, especially when pertaining to PC Gaming. This "game" is a piece of software that they acquired from someone else in an almost finished state for PC/Mac only release. Then they convert it to PS3/Xbox only and give excuses over why they aren't releasing the computer versions. As to the latency/lag/insert whatever other lingo you want to use, PC Gaming has always proven to be more reliable with sound production and transfer. I don't think that is the real point where Ubisoft missed the boat, though, because they didn't do their… Read more »

Well this su*ks! Anywho, for all of you that have bought guitars.
Download a guitar pro and start strumming.

The game won't make you in to a overnight Hendrix. If it does in fact come out in May, you have enough time to learn the basics. And then use the game for exercises which could be borring. Then again there is tons of stuf on the interwebs to make guitar practice fun.

Still want the PC version. Why should I go and buy a Xbox or PS3. Don't need them, don't want them. PC is tops!

*sigh* I was sooo holding out for the PC version. Told the wife that was all she had to get me for Christmas. Had a feeling this would happen and got a cheap Xbox for Black Friday. Not too bad because the game dropped to fifty bucks that day too. Still very disappointed in the tight fisted management at Ubisoft for their lack of vision and support for a real game changer.

They brought the game out on the Xbox so get a console if you want to play the game.

After several people, myself included, bought guitars in preparation for the PC version, Mr. Higo decided it's more important to focus on DLC rather than getting the PC version out. Most PC folks are older and don't like being brushed aside. I cancelled my Netflix subscritption for this kind of crap. We have an XBox 360, but I'm hearing there is lag time that the PC version was supposed to fix. So it's either no Rocksmith or an XBox 360 version with lag time. You just really turned off a lot of customers, with kids, to focus on DLC. The… Read more »

The Xbox/PS3 version has latency not lag.
There's a difference.

There is no evidence to support that the PC version will have 0 latency.

In short. Get the game for Xbox360

The PC version WILL suffer from the same "lag" or "delay" users are getting on the consoles. Several years ago a developer released a program called "Amplitube" which was effectively a pre-amp and pedal program for PC audio. The sound was great and you had lots of control an immediately felt like a rock star with high dollar toys, but there was/is a several millisecond delay after you played a note while the computer processed the sound then plays it back. Unlike solid-state amps and pre-amps and pedals which use hardware solutions to modify the input sound at the speed… Read more »

joe user

not burned at all. i said "a couple years ago," and it was v1 of amplitube and on an old athlon3200+. Also not 'metal' or whatever ver youre using. But, youre right, computers are faster today and software can always be improved.. maybe new versions utilize fancy hardware audio controllers i dont own, etc. Was simply trying to illustrate the point that software is never going to be as good as a hardware solution.. maybe a g560 whatever is good enough.. just thinking people should have some understanding of how the system works, before they complain about lag, etc.
joe user
Guest

….because i guarantee that if we do get a PC version of rocksmith, pc users will complain about lag--mark-my-words. even if you dont get lag, someone will. then they can read this and cry about not owning a better computer 🙂

I have an old pentium 4 2.2GHz and I don't get a noticable latency with guitar rig. So it can be done.

Input latency in music softwares on PC have a very little to do with machine power but a lot with sound card quality and even more with it's drivers.( of course it's different if the issue comes from processing latency but in my experience it's very rare) I also own Amplitude and i've done some tests with it. It is almost unusable with an integrated soundcard used with it's stock drivers cause of the horrible lag (several tenth of second) It's a lot better, but still not perfect, with Asio4All. With a decent soundcard (with good Asio drivers, i insist… Read more »

Ah finally someone who knows what they are talking about :). I was about to write basically this samething. I dont know why people think latency is an issue with not having a powerful enough computer. Its a buffering issue which like you said can be fixed with proper asio drivers. Just thought I would back you up on this that way maybe people will realize what your saying is accurate.

Sorry for the dumb question but what does DLC stand for? I too was anxiously waiting for the PC version. I don't have XBOX or PS3 and definitely in the 35+ yr old crowd.

Hi Fred,

DLC stands for Downloadable Content, meaning additional content the developer of the game has added after the game launched retail. Hope that clears it up for you.

Fred

Thanks for the clarification.

DifferentDan

Shame. I was looking forwards to getting that. It's an odd decision, since RockSmith does seem aimed at an older audience, who is much more likely to have a PC than a playing console.
Oh, well, at least we miss out on the disappointment when we realise we can't play it anyway as it's connect to that horrible UCantPlay DRM system, which just happens to be down on any given day. (Come on, it contains extra hardware, how are we supposed to pirate it?)
And don't call me a kid.

I had the PC version on pre-order at Amazon when I got the "there's a delay" email sometime over the weekend. I canceled my order. I'll be very surprised if the PC version ever sees the light of day now. If they STOPPED working on an entire platform just to work up DLC (to charge for) and bug fixes for the console kids, then they were never serious about offering it on the computer to begin with.

At the very least, I hope the PC version ends up being cheaper. It also wouldn't hurt to maybe add a few DLC tracks, but my first wish is for a cheaper price.

I'd also like to see the game on Steam, which I doubt was going to happen because there was no word of pre-orders. I know it requires the cable, but you can buy that separately.

Steve
Guest

My two cents says that UBI might be missing an entire market segment by delaying the PC version of Rocksmith. Older potential customers in the 35+ age group are probably far more likely to already own a PC platform and more unlikely to own a gaming platform …

Good luck trying to compete with the kids for plaing time on their PS3 or XBox! Happy holidays to all, and have Cool Yule…

I bought my son his own PS3 so I wouldn't have to compete with him for my Rocksmith time!

I'm in the 35+. My wife and I own 2 Macs, 2 PCs and one Wii. We shall be waiting in the wings. If I really saw myself playing other games, I'd invest in a PS3 or XBOX… I won't win the argument ("if we by a gaming system I will play more guitar and better guitar, too!).

Everyone is really missing the point! I understand the frustration when you had your hopes up for the pc version, but what's really going on is the ps3 version is totally broken. They released a game that was obviously not tested very well. You cannot play any more than a 4-song set. If you play 5 songs in an event, the ps3 crashes. There are also numerous freezes that occur in all parts of the game. The ps3 community has been filling their inbox with tons of complaints.

RB and GH have nothing to do with actually learning guitar, unless your guitar has 4 colored buttons and a toggle rocker for strumming. All they teach is hand/eye coordination and how to be a good air guitarist.

Name one gaming platform that is under 5 years old, or in other words obsolete. Platform gaming is the lead weight, the anchor on all quality games.

But as long as the platform junkies keep playing and buying raving rabbids, Ubisoft will give into them as they are a continual, if not stupid, flow of income.

The real and dedicated gamers get the shaft.

Been there done that found a crappy teacher and wasted a year and $500 on basically learning to read tabs. No drills, no technique, just showing off what a good player HE was. If this game can teach me by repetition and very clear basic instruction to follow drill after drill after drill after drill in a motivated goal-based manner, it will be worth far more than the human interface I tried first, and worth waiting for.

This makes me sad and mad and less inclined to like the devs. I understand that they really need to support the current owners by addressing complaints and fixing problems. But working on NEW DLC for current owners before releasing the game for more platforms is total crap IMO.

Don't believe the lies… The only reason for the PC delay is concern for piracy (real or imagined).

Yes I imagine much of the delay is due to them finding the best way of distributing content.

These games are developed on computers.
A p.c. should be the first thing the game runs on.
Plus if you were never ready to put it out on p.c. don't say you are and then change the date again and again.
They really are just delaying because of piracy.
I do love the game and play it almost everyday on 360…but still cmon man.
