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.

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.
