Love it. Have it on xbox too

Its a fantastic tool. Ive had it on xbox 360 since it first came out, then bought it a second time due to a scratched disc.. then a third time for the xbox one, and the game has kept me interested and motivated to continue playing and learning. Unfortunately...after spending hundreds of dollars on DLC on seems i would, then again, have to purchase all those songs i have on xbox.. to play them on my iPad...I have over 90 an average of 3 bucks after pushing the 300.00 mark..AGAIN!!!
I have, literally, spent over a thousand dollars on this game.
I absolutely love it... but come on...really.. couldnt there at least be a discounted buy in for all the DLC ive already paid for?

Great game too expensive

Ive used rock smith before, it’s great. The in app purchase is 2.99 per song. Needs more free music.

Great app but there are issues that need to be addressed

I’ve been using the Rocksmith app for the past few months and I really enjoy it. The gameplay is almost identical to the Xbox app, which is awesome. But the biggest problem I keep facing is that it signs me out of my Ubisoft account and constantly asks for me to sign back in. Sometimes I get errors “cannot sign in to service please try again later”, which is very annoying because it means I can’t access my downloaded songs.

I urge Ubisoft to fix this issue!
