Rocksmith’s latest version is the 2014 remastered edition. Inside the box, you’ll find the game CD and a Real Tone Cable, which you’ll use to connect your instrument of choice to the computer or console. The Real Tone Cable will connect to your guitar via a 1/4″ jack, so electric guitars are best for this particular system, though acoustic units outfitted with pickups that have an appropriate jack will work, too.

If you’ve already got a Real Tone Cable, you can purchase the game as a standalone for a lower price. Conversely, users who already have a copy of the game, or just need an additional cable, can buy a Real Tone cord by itself, as well.

Here’s a look at what everything will cost you:

  • Rocksmith 2014 Remastered Edition: $59.99
  • No Cable included: $39.99
  • Real Tone Cable: $28.99
