Exactly what you just stated. When books that come out screw with the story line they are not cannon. With the DMC4 book to story writer wrote in his book that the book wasn't cannon to the series. He explain that this was the original story he wanted placed into DMC4.
Capcom stated that DMC4 was 1 year after the DMC anime. The anime is one year after DMC1. Dante was about 28 in DMC1 so in DMC4 Dante 30 years of age. I forgot all about the anime but yea it fits into there.

I think you can order it online, it doesn't contradict anything from part 1 but it does contradict post-Kamiya DMC.

I think my hate for DmC's story stems from the fact that Capcom introduced a great new character, for the series, in the form of Nero, then totally abandoned him. They could have taken the series in a totally new direction with him... but instead decide to make a reboot where the new Dante shares tons of similarities with Nero.
It makes no sense to me. Why make a reboot if your main character is simply going to behave a lot like a character you recently introduced into your series and, at the same time, bastardizes the previous series?
I guess I just don't understand "narrative" like Ninja Theory, or something... but then again, I'm completely dumbfounded by the fact that Capcom went to NT to reboot DMC when they could have gone to a superior action game developer - Platinum Games - and, at the same time, Kamiya himself.
But meh, after I buy Remember Me used for $30 or less dollars, I'm completely done with Capcom. Especially when P* is in the business of developing amazing action games.

To address the TC, your argument really misses the point.
Then they don't have to buy it. I'm just pointing out that the majority of the older games were not tied together by a large overarching plot map either.

Okay? Point settled. I more than likely am, because as most people have already pointed out, the storyline isn't the main thing that is important for these types of games. The gameplay is, and while I love a good story, the gameplay look epic.
Also, this part is directed at no one in particular, but if somewhere around 30-40 people on a message board can't make sense of the games storyline and what is canon/ what isnt, can we all agree the story is nearly non-exsistant?

What's important is what happens during each game, and those events stay there. They don't bring a lot of stuff from one game to the next, except characters and weapons. Just look at the jumbled progressiveness of the games: DMC (start) > DMC2 (far future) > DM3 (past) > DMC4 (sequel to the first). You can NOT know the other games and enjoy any of these games.
See Dante's cutscenes. How many story related things is read into? Very little, but we instead het over the top crazy cutscenes. DMC is all about eyecandy and combat. Just look at Trish in DMC4, she appeared in a middle cutscene just for PLOT.
