It took its sweet-ass time to get here, but Rocksmith recent landed in Australia in what Ubisoft is touting as the definitive version, given we've got everything that the US has been getting in dribs and drabs since its release, and then some.

For the uninitiated, Rocksmith is NOT Guitar Hero or Rock Band, rather it's a videogame/software program that teaches you the basics of playing guitar, or offers you a platform to hone your skills, all though, via familiar (and some cool) songs in an equally familiar format. There's also the option to plug any guitar into the product regardless of brand or Rocksmith association.

You talk about lag.

What was your audio arrangement ?

Because for me, on a PS3 using standard stereo analogue audio it wasn't noticeable.

Analogue audio won't have lag Obes that's why the game suggests it in the loading screens. It is digital sound that can have lag it's apparently a potential problem with all sorts of rhythm games. I didn't have a problem with digital on my PS3 but I set the output to feed into my amp anyway, for the LOLS.

In the first setup I used it was on an Xbox 360 with optical audio, which was fine. The second setup was just an HDMI cable, but for the average punter I feel that should cut it.

I know they suggest to use analogue audio, but I feel that's very limiting for a "game" like this.

Do you ask that question when you're playing a FPS?

(f*****g hate that question, seriously.)

If you're starting from scratch, then yes

Going to guess that lag referred to is due to post-processing in the HDTV display, happens on lots of both plasmas and lcds. Not noticeable in most games, but annoying as s*** in rhythm games.

I think it's a valid question for this "game". It comes across as more of a tutorial, so then it probably will make you a better guitarist. Of course this depends on what level you're already at and how you want to play ultimately. Perhaps it's a good introduction to playing guitar.

Dan - the lag was very annoying when I switched to that basic setup, to the point I couldn't keep playing.
