At first I was against this, and I still am not a huge fan of localized haptic feedback (just because outside of a new amazing technology, the amount of components, and energy to activate them would hurt the specs of the device), but when you consider gaming and the possibilities it makes good sense. I even like just the simple vibe on the Wii. I'd probably have it turned off for typing.
