Well, they're very cumbersome. Especially on the Wii, in which every game has their own friend code that differs from the system's friend code. Furthermore, it makes befriending random strangers a hassle. There are reasonable criticisms about friend codes and why the system should be replaced.

My dragon egg is dead. Thanks guys. Also, blue cheese is evil and the creator should be flogged.

PSN charges you for extra features though.

Nintendo doesn't even provide these extra features, so that's a huge plus in my book. Everyone is equal online.
