Ubisoft announces the next, next big thing in guitar games, Rocksmith

No doubt, Rocksmith is bound to draw comparisons to the Guitar Hero franchise. This in mind, Key insisted Ubisoft's game will offer a unique learning experience and a level of authenticity that will elevate it above Activision's freshly buried series, insisting, "Guitar Hero is a party game. Rocksmith is a music experience."

Ouch. I believe that is what people in the biz call a "slam". Rocksmith is tentatively scheduled for a September release. Are you ready to rock?! Again?!
