Release date[edit]

  • Release date?
    • Thanks for signing your comment... There's no official release date in the website of the game, it just says it'll be late 2008. L Lawliet (talk) 05:57, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
    • Updating release date to 2009 per website (talk) 18:51, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
  • I think the article needs citations. L Lawliet (talk) 05:57, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

I think they would have announced a release date if they were going to release it this year. Does anyone even care about this article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:48, 7 December 2009 (UTC)


this page is pitiful...i think it is obvious this game isnt gonna happen, anyone else think we should delete it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:24, 11 February 2010 (UTC)


I read somewhere that this game was picked up by Ubisoft, and what they made of it was the recently announced Template:Rocksmith. (talk) 12:32, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I notice that was on the article, and needs a source. If it's true, then I recommend merging this article, or at least the bare minimum relative facts, with Rocksmith. Tubularbells1993 16:46, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Here's how I'd do that, personally:

"The game was originally in development by GameTank for Mac OS X and PC under the title of Guitar Rising; problems with note recognition halted development as the developers tried to figure out what to do, but eventually it migrated to Ubisoft, was renamed Rocksmith, and continued development."

Just a draft. We'd need to note exactly how and why it went to Ubisoft in the end. Tubularbells1993 17:17, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

So this is why I've proposed we delete this page[edit]

  • Home page domain up for sale; therefore, citations for it are dead links.
  • Guitar Rising page at IGN worthless.
  • I fail to see the relevance or significance of Jam Origin.
  • IGN interview for Guitar Rising a dead link.
  • I have no idea what the fifth citation refers to…
  • Per policy, YouTube is usually not an acceptable source. (There are exceptions, but I fail to see why those are applicable here.)

It seems people generally don't care very much about this article, so I won't make a fuss either way. If I have to I'll just submit it to be deleted the traditional way.

Just to note (I removed the PROD) - "Guitar Rising" remains a viable search term and the little history we know of it is important towards Rocksmith. Thus I agree with a merge, leaving this as a redirect. We don't need to bring over the song list since the game never materialized (though certainly can mention it would have had 30 songs, etc.) --MASEM (t) 14:59, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree. I saw you did that - check Talk:Rocksmith, let's get the discussion ball rolling and hopefully maybe a few others will show up. And it's a smarter move in the long run than what I had in mind, especially since there's at least one interview on IGN that was never included here. Still, of course none of the sources used on THIS page are valid. A redirect is also a good idea. LazyBastardGuy 07:14, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

I think eventually we'll want to blank this page and provide a redirect to Rocksmith. We might be ready to go on that now. LazyBastardGuy 09:00, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
