Nintendo Wii will be hitting the road this month with a live event in retail locations across the US.

The event includes live demonstrations of Wii Music, a game that contains 50 songs and lets users interact with more than 60 different instruments.

Street performers and interactive game demos are slated to land at malls this weekend in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, LA, New York City, San Francisco and Washington, DC.

In other news, sales of the Wii and Nintendo DS continue to top the charts with industry researcher NPD Group, with 1.29 million of the consoles (803,210 Wiis, 491,176 Nintendo DS systems) finding their way into US homes in October 2008. That put Nintendo’s total hardware unit sales up 25.7% over October 2007, accounting for 59.3% of the industry’s total hardware unit sales that month.
