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
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.
The song selection is great and the DLC options keep expanding. The best, though, is their great staff and community management. All the new DLC comes from player requests (as long as Rocksmith/Ubisoft can get the rights to the songs). And that's awesome. The quality of the community is hit or miss, but the staff is fantastic and super-helpful.
All that said, there are a few quibbles I have with the game. I wish there was an easier way to view chord fingerings and positions before the song starts and that the chords names would show even at easier playing levels (so I'm not learning a song with the wrong fingering at first and then having to switch it up to play the chord properly. I think it'd be awesome to have an acoustic track as well. There's some cognitive dissonance involved in playing acoustic guitar tracks with an electric (with an acoustic tone emulator in the game). But those are small things.
Background: Have been playing guitar and bass on and off for 20+ years, was hoping this would be a fun way to jump back in.
