PC is the better platform to play on, they have way more songs made by the community. Xbox, PlayStation only have what Ubisoft can get permission to add, so no Metallica unfortunately, but just about everything else
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.
Audio lag makes the game frustrating and almost unplayable...
If you read the forums, there are workarounds that minimize the lag, but they generally involve changing out your a/v setup, using headphones, or doing something that otherwise compromises what should be a plug and play experience. For me, these solutions are a no go... I'm not willing to rewire my entire theater setup for 1 game.
As for the game play-
If you are accustomed to standard tablature or tab pro, there is a definite learning curve to the Rocksmith System. Instead of a right to left / scrolling tab interface, the neck is diagrammed as colors/numbers/finger positions as the notes come flying at you. Not bad, just diffrent and takes adjustment if you are seasoned at reading tab.
The song learning progression is similar to Guitar Hero where the easy setting have you playing a skeleton version with a few notes through the song. Notes/chords/phrases are added to 'fill in' the song as you progress. Keep playing the song over and over and the song eventually fills in completely as you learn and perfect the song.
Lead, rhythm and bass parts are included and each 'path' shares a similar progression through the song.
At the easy levels it may be frustrating as it doesn't feel like you're really playing anything, but persevere and it becomes much more rewarding as the difficulty increases and the song fills in.
Overall, it Is an interesting game/tool, but the technical issues of audio lag takes much joy out of the product. There is so much promise in this interactive method of guitar, but totally plagued by a huge technical glitch.
The game is worth 5 stars though, for a person that wont have this issue i mention.
