I am confused the same website has posted two different things. One they say no friend codes another story says refined codes

Ill wait till i actually see what the network is actually like and what the costs will be, assuming there is any, before judging it.

I'll wait to believe until Nintendo says that there is an account based system.

Nothing to be impressed about the friend code system was pretty awful anyways.

"If you look at 3DS and the online of that you’ll get an understanding of where we’re going with Wii U and we’re taking that even further. We can’t talk about the details yet as Mr Iwata will announce those slightly later. But with the online of 3DS it’s obviously a massive leap on from where we were with DSi and DSi XL. It’s smooth, robust, it doesn’t drop in and out.

The friend code system has also been refined It still exists but in the same way that you'd need to pair up with friends on PSN or Xbox live. Now it's much closer to that kind of online gaming experience than what it was before."

actually hints at the Wii U as well

Maybe everyone makes there account but each account has a friend code.
