Nintendo should have been doing this years ago during the Wii launch.Friend codes also intrude in the online community of Nintendo not to mention the lack of a hard drive which could capitalize on basic features like online demos for Wii games.

I don't think Nintendo agrees with this however.They make too much money to care on what the competition does
