Ubisoft tuning up Rocksmith 2014 Edition for PS4, Xbox One

Guitarsmith 2014_LosingMyReligion_ChordGameplayUnlike those once-popular entertainment-based guitar games, Ubisoft’s Rocksmith is somehow still going strong. Of course it’s more of a learning tool than a “game”, and utilizes a real guitar, so it sorta makes sense.

Those who want to upgrade to the latest and greatest version can pick up Rocksmith 2014 Edition for the PS4 and Xbox One in early November. The enhanced versions feature tuned up visuals, sharing, and in the case of the PS4 version, PS Vita remote play… as weird as that sounds.

Would-be guitar gods who have previously purchased Rocksmith content on the PS3 or Xbox 360 can redownload the content free of charge (thankfully).

Read on and check out some screens and the official announcement.
