Because it is absolutely terrible compared to its competitors or even competitors from 10 years ago...

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.
Let's dispel with this notion that so64 does not know what he is doing. He knows exactly what he is doing. www.brokencontrollers.com 3DS FC:5327-0905-8783

So is PSN, but you don't have to remember a 12 digit code for ever single game.

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.
