It’s no secret that a lot of people like Rocksmith. Our own Editor-in-Chief gave it a 10/10, so this will definitely excite the masses.
This morning, some eagle-eyed lookouts found that the first DLC for Rocksmith has been released in the Xbox Live Marketplace. How much does it rock?
Rocksmith debut DLC singles:
- Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird
- Radiohead – Bodysnatchers
- The Black Keys – Tighten Up
These songs are available individually for 240 MSP ($3) on the XBLM, with no official word yet on if they will arrive on the PSN later today.
There is also no word yet on if Ubisoft will be trying to keep up with Rock Band‘s weekly DLC schedule, or even Guitar Hero‘s monthly DLC schedule, but you have to start somewhere.
Frankly, I find $3 for a song is way overpriced considering for the same price in Rock Band you get to play not only pro-guitar, but pro-bass, pro-keyboard, pro-drums, vocal harmonies, as well as the plastic, simplified equivalent of each instrument. If Rocksmith wants to compete in the DLC market, they will either have to lower the price, or astound with something amazing. Or they could just put in more Muse.
How do you feel about the price per song? How do you feel about the song choices? Let us know in the comments!
