Rocksmith For PC + the infamous cable for $20
Even if you already have the game, 20 bucks for the cable isn't bad.

Why do you say infamous? I just looked at the Amazon reviews (for the cable alone) and it's very poorly reviewed. Is the cable known to be complete junk? Is there a standard cable that's more reliable? This game has always been on my to-do list, but I'm in the dark about the cable.

EDIT: FFS. Now I just read the reviews for the actual bundle. The top reviews are all complaining there's no CD key included and you need to e-mail Ubisoft and jump through some hoops to get an actual key. Think I'll keep it on my to-do list for now. Too busy anyways.

The cables sell for about $30 by themselves. They may be poorly made, or they may just wear out after extended use.

Nothing really wrong with the cable. Its just that it usually costs at least $30 by itself. I've seen it up $50. People will buy the game off of Steam for $10 and then get sticker shock when looking for the cable. They can wear out, so can everything else, but its not a common occurrence. That said Rocksmith is a great game.

Thanks and repped. In for one. I fit into that category - grabbed the base game off of steam real cheap a couple of years ago, but never got the cable. I realized how much the cable was at the time, but found a workaround online using a custom exe and the mic input on a pc instead (use a 1/8th" to 1/4" adapter plugged into the guitar). It turned out to be more of a half-assed workaround because the game wasn't really playable this way (was getting a lot of unwanted distortion at first until I found a setting to eliminate that but could never get rid of the half second of input delay). Hopefully everything is fine using the proper cable.

Yes, the cable is universal across console and PC.

The cables are really pretty well made. Not up to pro audio standards, or anything, but it should hold up just fine for years around the house.

I have the original rocksmith cable. I bought it when it launched, and it's still going strong.

I like it because it gives you specific tasks to try to get better at for certain songs, and you can loop and slow down difficult sections. I think it makes it a hell of a lot more fun for beginners. The song library is lacking though, especially for less popular genres. Luckily customsforge exists for PC to fix this problem.
