WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. International Trade Commission said on Tuesday it will investigate certain gaming console systems from Nintendo Co Ltd after California-based Gamevice Inc filed a complaint alleging that their importation infringed on its patents.

The ITC said in a statement its probe involved “certain portable gaming console systems with attachable handheld controllers and components” and that it would make a final determination as soon as practical.
