I got the demo early, but awesome news for everyone else.  I'm very excited for this game to come out.

Got this about over a month ago on the Japanese marketplace. It's alright, have yet to be totally sold on it.

Demo is up on PSN also (At least the EU PSN)

I've had the demo for a while(got it off of the Japanese marketplace), but this is great news for those who haven't played it yet. 
 
And maybe it'll make some of the haters realize that it's a fantastic action game rather than an X-Blades type of game with nothing going for it beyond sex appeal.

Yeah I was afraid that the game was going to be like X-blades with all the sex appeal and none of a game but surprisingly is pretty good when I played the demo. Man January can't come soon enough.

@Icemael: Right you are.  I just played the demo, it is one hell of an action game, definitely of the same pedigree as Devil May Cry, if not better. The sex appeal of Bayonetta doesn't hurt either. The animation is amazing, I could watch her walk all day.  I'll admit, I was a skeptic after seeing more ridiculous shit after more ridiculous shit, but after playing the demo, getting the controller in my hand, it all works. All of it. I'm buying this game.

I got to admit the demo impressed me.

Once I got used to the controls a bit, the game was really awesome.  I'm gonna be getting this one for sure.

Great demo, I hate how they cut it short from the one they put up at expos like PAX and such.

I played the Japanese PSN demo a while back and I just played this and I gotta say, it might be a pretty awesome game, its just really exciting and fast 
 
Also, I love Japanese craziness

seems like this is worth a download from what you guys are saying. not a huge DMC4 fan in all honesty but it couldn't hurt to check it out.

Will play when I get home, I feel like alot of people are giving this game the same treatment as Avatar " Hey look a new idea lets shit all over it"

Just got around playing the demo, and it was fun as hell!
But it was a bit different from the quick look. There was a short battle sequence in the beginning that Jeff and Vinny did not play, and the demo stopped before i got to kill the big boss.:(
