CrunchWeek: The Xbox One & Playstation 4, The Rise Of QuizUp, The Fall Of Turntable.fm

Daric, A New Peer To Peer Lending Platform, Will Go Live Next Week


It’s time for a new episode of CrunchWeek, the show in which a few of us writers sit ourselves down in front of a few TechCrunch TV cameras to discuss the most interesting news stories from the past seven days in the tech industry.

In this week’s show, Ryan Lawler, Greg Kumparak and I discuss the brand new Xbox One and Playstation 4 gaming consoles that are on the market just in time for the holiday shopping season (and whether or not they’d recommend that you buy one right away), the seemingly quick rise of QuizUp, the iPhone app that lets you challenge your friends to trivia competitions, and the announcement that Turntable.fm is shutting down its once-popular music streaming app.

The rise of QuizUp and the fall of Turntable is just the latest proof that the consumer app market is trend-driven in a lot of ways — so just like in fashion, an app that is in one day can be out the next. Watch us discuss that and more in the video above.
