Can I buy a used copy of Rocksmith to import the songs?

I know there is a fee, but do I also have to have a new copy of Rocksmith, or will a used one suffice? thanks.

An old copy will work just fine. That's what I did a couple weeks ago. I originally played the game on the Xbox360, but have recently switched over to the PS3 and was getting 2014 on the PS3. Picked up a used copy on Ebay for $10 and it worked fine to import the songs last night.

Awesome, thanks. Need to find me a cheap one now.

If you can find one at gamestop, you can return the game within 7 days and they give you a full refund :D

How does 2014 detect the previous version? Does the former just check for game/save data for the latter on the hard drive?

Not 100% positive, but I believe that's how it works. That's what a thread over at the official RS forums led me to believe anyway.

Awesome for the confirmation, thanks! I didn't think there would be any reason it wouldn't work but you never know. Essentially, we ALL have used copies on our hard drives once we play the game, eh? Doesn't matter if it was used when you bought it because the files are all the same regardless.
