5: The weapon system is pretty nifty in my eyes. Having 3 weapons on the fly at once is killer and after playing the demo it seems easy enough to get used to. i'd prefer it to be a toggle but then I'd find gunning to be awkward as I think i'd be whipping instead of gunning 70% of the time.
If the Angel/Demon mode buttons were toggles they could have put the whip on R1. Push to lift, hold to pull. Bad design, really. Having to hold the triggers doesn't add anyhting to the gameplay (the contrary actually).
Cool, I'm glad you enjoy it. If you think it's worth $60, that's up to you and I hope you get your money's worth.
Personally, I don't see $60, especially as a DMC game. As a new IP, I'd consider spending money on this game, but that's not the case.
