Anyway the special editions came out in the US a couple of days ago and The Goddess Hathor has posted this blog which might help clear a few things up. Apparently:
- There are a few different packages available from different places;
- The Vault is only available in the United States, from May 18, 2010 to November 11, 2011.
I don't know yet if international fans will get something different in the Vault or nothing at all.
milomom has also posted about the albums in the Special Editions thread on JoviTalk:
Each CD unlocked only that portion of the vault that corresponds to that CD. An additional live track from each CD was available for streaming, but I can't buy the tracks until May 18. Silent Night is the track from Fahrenheit, and Raise Your Hands is the SWW track. Validating each CD also loaded photos from that timeframe into a gallery in the vault.She also mentioned that Walmart was selling the CDs in normal jewel cases but cheaper, while Best Buy had the digipacks.
