US Customs authorities launched Wednesday a sweeping crackdown on the sale and distribution of modification chips and electronic devices that lets users play pirated video games.

Federal agents executed 32 search warrants in 16 states including California, Florida, Hawaii and New York.

According to the US Chamber of Commerce, counterfeiting and piracy costs the US economy between 200 billion and 250 billion a year.
