As far as songs go there are a total of 55 available at the start, and an additional 10 that you can unlock as you play the game. Furthermore, you can transfer all of your past purchases from the 360 edition, but unfortunately, you can not transfer your saved process from the 360 edition to the new Xbox One edition. Overall, that's not a big deal since I will play theses songs over and over again anyway.
Multiplayer: It's super fun to jam with your friends on Rocksmith. This game allows you to plug in two cords and play along with someone else. One player can play lead and the other can choose rhythm, but you can also plug in a bass as well, which is a great option.
I'm sure people are still wondering if they need to upgrade, and just know it's totally your call. Rocksmith has said that they will continue to support the last console, but if you never played Rocksmith before then I highly recommend trying it. It's great for first time guitar players and advance players. Rocksmith teaches you everything you need to know! All you need is a guitar, and time to practice.
Update: Many players are complaining of a lag, but I think this depends on the TV you have, because I have no lag. I also have a fairly good TV, which has great sound and video qualities, so I'm convinced that the better TV you have the less likely you will have a lag. On top of that if you still have a slight lag you might want to try to anticipate the note a little early, tune your strings again, and or put new strings on your guitar. I remember that changing my guitar strings on the 360 edition helped a lot when I was experiencing lags, so you might want to give that a try if you're still having problems.
There are quite a few mini games that help build up skills as well, like chords, picking, rhythm, ect.
Based on the variety of reviews that have been posted, there seems to be some question as to whether or not this game will work as is or if you have to take extra steps to reroute your audio signal before it gets to your TV. I wanted to share what the official response is from one of the developers this is from the ubisoft forum http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/924044-Rocksmith-2014-PlayStation-4-amp-Xbox-One-FAQ?s=43061b8a674ba5457c445768f08a07b0 ):
When asked if running HDMI audio through the TV will work or not, this was the developers reply:
It might, but we have a hunch it probably won't work well. Some people say they have no problem, but since there are so many HDTVs out there, all with different chips and designs and innards, there is no way for us to predict any individual user's setup. If HDMI audio works for you, cool! But we really, really do not recommend crossing your fingers and hoping you might be one of the very few people for whom HDMI audio through a TV works just fine. (end response)
So depending on how you plan on rerouting your audio to some sort of receiver, assuming of course you haven't done so already, your costs can vary.
From my own personal experience, I can attest to purchasing the game only to experience the same latency issues others have complained about. But, I knew going in that it was quite possible that I would have to spend some additional money and do some additional troubleshooting. Knowing upfront what I was getting into did not at all sour my experience with it.
I've just purchased some equipment to isolate my audio signal from my HDMI cable. It was about $45. That additional price tag may be unacceptable to some folks. Be warned upfront that this is the reality of purchasing this software. .
I think some folks my just say, heck with it and deal with the lag. I would not advise that. The latency issues make some elements unplayable. As for the guitarist who is just beginning, the lag issues could be very destructive as far getting your timing or rhythm down. You should eventually be able to feel (or count) as when to play the next note. The lag can also cause your musical phrases to simply dissolve to nothing or develop into some sort of strange electronic weirdness. I was playing the opening to Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train last night (not part of the software I just know the riff) and found the lag simply would just cut off the end of the riff. The lag issue definitely needs to be fixed. Just living with it is not at all an option.
Aside from that, the game is five star. You could easily justify the price tag if you try and quantify it with the cost of taking guitar lessons. There are many reviews that have already highlighted the good parts of the game so I won't into that. But, because of the latency issues, the game is only four stars.
