Just released were 9 new screenshots that were seen during Sony's E3 press conference yesterday. Nothing really jumps out at us with this new batch, except we get a look at the rear of a still unknown car that we've so far only seen the front of. We still think this could be a reincarnation of the ZR350 from San Andreas. The rear of it (first screenshot below) looks like a Maserati, which originally made us think Ocelot F620. But the wheels and the fender vent match up with the could-be-ZR350, which has a manufacturer logo on the front which was not in GTAIV.
Also we are trying to decipher what the badging on the rear of the car says. It looks like it says "Khamelion" which is the electric car that Rockstar mentioned in the collectors edition, but this car has visible exhaust pipes, which an electric car would not have.
Rockstar have just announced details on a Special Edition and Collector's Edition of GTAV, which are both available for preorder later today. As a bonus, if you preorder any copy of GTAV (even standard edition) you will have access to fly the Atomic Blimp that we've all seen in the trailers and screenshots.

As expected, a swath of GTAV previews were published today, revealing some tantilizing tidbits of information which we've summarized in list form as the most interesting. If you've read our Good, Bad, & Ugly series last year, you'll notice quite a few things we pleaded for actually made their way into the game.
Mini games include a complete 9-hole golf course (pick your own clubs) and yoga.
Pay N Spray will now be full custom shops where you can change vehicle appearance and performance, even customize your own license plate.
Shipwrecks are among the numerous things to find underwater, and they may contain discoverable items.
Customize your weapons similar to Max Payne 3 by switching out scopes, silencers, extended mags, and flashlights.
The entire map is open from the start.
Depending on the character, location, and time of day, you can experience dynamic events like hitchhikers, broken-down cars, and ATM robberies.
Health regenerates up to 50%, but you'll need medical packs to make up the difference. There are also various levels of body armor.
There are five or six major heist missions, and lots of smaller missions beforehand to set them up. One example is placing a getaway car in an acceptable area so it can be used for a later mission. Missions actually matter!
Los Santos' landmass is 3.5x larger than that of Red Dead Redemption; 5x larger if you count the ocean.
You can find scuba gear in boats.
Use gang territory to your advantage when being chased by the cops: gang members will open fire on police and will leave you alone until you antagonize them yourself
You can take photos with your smartphone and upload them to the Rockstar Social Club.
Each character has his own bank account, can buy houses, garages, marinas, helipads, or businesses which will generate income.
Ability to hire support characters for extra help on larger missions. If they survive, you can use them again.
Bullet-time-esque ability for each character: Michael can slow down time as he shoots, Franklin as he drives, Trevor as he melees.
Cops use line-of-sight and won't magically know exactly where you are like in GTAIV. You can hide inside the search radius as long as they can't see you.
Also included were over 20 high-res screenshots. We see a Benefactor sports car in front of the Von Crastenburg Hotel, Michael on his smartphone, a Dodo-esque plane approaching a beach, Bahama Mama's West, and a bunch of different shootout scenes with the three characters wearing masks that remind us of the Max Payne 3 multiplayer masks.
