In the latest news-only episode of The Firmware Update, Persona 5 has fully stolen Joe & Malcolm's respective hearts. Also, the good times are rolling for Naughty Dog, and a whole new hardware contender enters the arena. Video games!

Talking Points: Joe's hot start to the month of April; Malcolm's less hot start to the month of April; Uncharted: The Lost Legacy gets a release date and price point; Persona 5's rousing success is lightly marred by baffling share restrictions; Mass Effect: Andromeda starts a two-month plan to fix a game that could have been better off with a two-month delay; Nier: Automata joins the platinum club; Spider-Man PS4 release window confusion; digital bestsellers for March 2017; Dark Souls publisher teases...something; a supremely deep dive into Project Scorpio and what it means for Xbox at E3 2017.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
