Well, it looks like Ubisoft still thinks there some room left in the rhythm game genre. It's just announced that it will be releasing Rocksmith for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sometime this fall, which is actually a revamped version of the Guitar Rising game that has been in development at GameTank for some time now. The hook with this one is that it'll actually let you use any real guitar to play the game, and it even promises to teach you how to play if you don't know already. Ubisoft also says that you won't need an amplifier to play -- you just plug your guitar right into your console, apparently with a standard USB instrument cable. Details on the game itself are otherwise fairly light, although it does seem like you'll have a pretty solid lineup of music to play along with, including tracks from David Bowie, The Black Keys, Interpol, Nirvana and The Rolling Stones. Head on past the break for a teaser video.
