I couldn't get the game to run from the originally released demo installer, but thankfully Steam bypasses all that and just installs straight to the HDD no fuss.

So thoughts?

I honestly think it sets a new standard for just how console to PC ports should be handled, it's nay perfect mind (no widescreen support, button configs are a tad iffy, save system? etc) but overall it's a damn impressive demo. It both looks and runs great on my machine which is only Dx9 based and hardly the highest spec around:

Feedback has mostly been very positive thus far, and I hereby add my own to praising Capcom in delivering what looks like being a very worthy port.
