Ubisoft just confirmed that Rocksmith will be hitting Europe on September 13th, 2012 (UK) and September 14th, 2012 (everywhere else).

Here is the PR and the triumphant video!

European fans, your voices have been heard. We are proud and excited to announce that Rocksmith will be available in Europe on September 13th(/14th), upon popular request! More information coming soon, stay tuned!

“Today, Ubisoft® announced that Rocksmith™, an innovative, efficient and fun way to learn how to play the guitar, will be released on September 14, 2012 in the UK for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 and later on Windows PC/MAC. Highly acclaimed in North America, Rocksmith is a revolution in the music game genre: for the first time ever, players can plug any real electric guitar into their Xbox 360 console, PlayStation®3 or PC/MAC. No more plastic, no more button bashing: Rocksmith is the real thing for those who are serious about guitar learning and playing. The UK version of Rocksmith will include the original game already released in North America plus exclusive additional content.”

“Rocksmith has already seduced hundreds of thousands in North America and we are very proud to bring this game into our territories”, said Geoffroy Sardin, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer at Ubisoft EMEA. “The main reason for this success is that Rocksmith offers so much more than previous guitar games: the possibility to actually master a real instrument. “

" The UK version of Rocksmith will include the original game already released in North America plus exclusive additional content.”

Could this exclusive content be bass support?

They claim they got the information straight from Ubisoft

Could purely be about rights issues.

Harmonix never released 'Rock Band 2' in Australia because of that…..

reckon why its been such an issue? thats an entire year latetr than america. i have had this game since october. wading through garbage download packs of 3 doors from 182 graces. at least the limes can cut to the chase on dlc options. hopefully this will inspire some uk flavored rock packs.

Bummer. The lack of Australia in that news makes me think I'll have to import from the UK.

I already have a copy from the US, but it's too annoying getting the DLC.
