Here are some highlights/screens if you miss it:

As of 12:30pm Eastern, the press event is still taking place. Let's hope Nintendo has even bigger surprises in store. We'll see. They're going to need to have something huge to overshadow Microsoft's event from yesterday. I'll post more later on...

UPDATE 3:01pm Eastern
• The Wii Vitality Sensor, you slip the sensor on your finger and it detects your pulse, attaches to the Wiimote
• Tons of DS games were announced, including a GTA-style cop game
Metroid: Other M, Nintendo is working with Team Ninja for this, available 2010
Super Mario Galaxy 2
• Exclusive M-rated Sega game being published by Nintendo, this is a first for Nintendo
• Miyamoto was a no-show

And that's it!
