    Absolute worst case you can use a partition with Linux and use WINE to run windows programs. That is if you don't want to splurge on purchasing Windows 7 that is.

    You buy the physical game for PC and then you have to activate it on Steam to play it

    Actually, windows 7 64 bit is the most popular OS statistically speaking. On top of that most new software, especially games, no longer support XP. Not all but most of what I have seen. Which is a shame because XP was the best OS since 98 until 7 came out, and 7 is only a tad bit better, aside from requiring less resources and such.

    From what I read you buy it on steam, have to download it and you buy the real tone cable from a website like Gamestop for a whopping $30, which in the musical world is pennies on the dollar for the applications outside of the game this beauty does. I believe I read that in a faq somewhere but I don't feel like looking it up at the moment.

    Second time I get an answer from Paul, go Paul! (first was about Uplay)
    Paul Cross ‏@crossieRS :
    "We are not officially supporting XP I'm afraid, Win 7 or Vista are the ways to go. (Win7!)"

    I think you can do both. Wonder how much it will cost on Steam...

    What I gather from Paul's tweet is the game is still going to work on XP but it's not going to be optimal.

    Well even if windows XP won't work at all with it not only is over half the windows community using 7 at this point but when you can run Linux with WINE for free there is no reason to be angry about it. After all there all you need to do is create a partition, find a version of Linux that comes with WINE or install it separately, and BAM! you can run Rocksmith or any other game that requires 7 or Vista.
