To be perfectly blunt, we expected this week to be something of a snooze.

It's late March and, given it's the week after GDC, we figured everyone in the industry would either be nursing their hangovers from the convention or furiously sending follow-up emails to contacts made over late night drinks and discussions.

Then Facebook dropped a bombshell on the industry by announcing its proposed acquisition of VR firm Oculus for the cool sum of $2 billion.

As if that wasn't enough, the European Commission finally announced its approval of Games Tax Relief for developers in the UK.

Suffice it to say the March doldrums are nowhere to be seen as the news flew at us from every corner of the globe this week. But don't worry if you missed anything, we've got you covered with the PocketGamer.biz look back at the Week That Was.
