I have a few questions...
Will Rocksmith 2014 carry over the bonus songs (6AM Salvation, Boss, Jules, Ricochet, Space Ostrich and The Star Spangled Banner) from RS1?
How will voice commands work in the game? Does it even have voice commands?
Will tuning before a song be done the same way as RS1?
Can we get this through PSN? I already have a cable and the disc isn't actually a bonus to me.
I am disappointed that they don't appear to have done anything to address the crumby cable. I know I will get flamed and likely banned from this forum for complaining about the cable, but the thing is absolute junk. My first one lasted around 3 months, and my second one is starting to pass more static than sound (just like the first one did before it went out completely)
Gonna have to give RS 2014 a definite pass until they improve the cable.
No problems with cable here, using it not far off daily sine dat one.
Maybe yours was a Monday cable.
In the big scheme of things I think the overall percentage of faulty cables was probably pretty low, and the majority of cables are still working fine (both of my original cables still work, although my PC will only recognize 1 of them consistently).
Personally I wouldn't let a bad cable or 2 turn me off from RS 2014. Double check your output jack on your guitar (I had to take my jack apart and re-bend the contact part of it on the inside once, and also had a loose nut on the outside that needed to be tightened for a solid signal) and get another cable.
I did pre-order RS 2014 with a cable because I want to see if I can get my PC to consistently recognize 2 different cables, so I need another cable to troubleshoot with. (although I think this is an issue/conflict with RS/Windows software, and not really a cable issue).

The cable works fine for me, but if you seem to have trouble with it you can try what some others here have done; connect the cable that comes the game to a wireless unit from Shure or Nady or another manufacturer you like. Leave that connected behind your TV. Then just connect the wireless to your guitar. The game cable doesn't get touched.
Also, I was impatient and imported the US version last time out. I've been getting the DLC from the US PSN store as well. Any chance the US disc and DLC is compatible with the UK RS2014 disc/download?
I take it we need to swap discs to play old disc based content? or is it imported?
Any news on set lists? My number 1 requested feature is to be able to make a set list to plat through rather than having to select 1 song at a time (always starting from 20th Century Boy on the carousel - Argh!).
Anyway - great news. I'm buying regardless of the answers
