that was old news on some other posting...i believe it was regarding another ULTIMATE WEMBLEY boxed set... that was to include T shirts, a backstage pass etc.

I remember others ridiculing it....(pricewise at least) and myself comparing it to "The Holy Hand Grenade Of Antioch"

guess i'm too "old school" to get with the USB craze. Only for die hard collectors me thinks.

^^  That holy grenade of Antioch business made me crack a smile! 
Since this item came to me as an e-mail alert and advertised an availability date of Nov 21st I felt it was a new item.
But perhaps its a re-issue for upcoming holiday shoppers?

I'm looking forward to getting both these. I guess they albums won't include the bonus discs and live albums? A shame - perhaps for the price they would've stuck the singles and greatest hits too - there would be a few duplications of course, but for the sake of completion.

And hopefully full HQ album artwork too - these USB releases usually cock up the artwork included, like pictures too small and badly labelled.
