If friend codes come back (in any form, really), then Nintendo really hasn't learned anything about online gaming.
Seriously. These promises that the online experience have been "fixed" with the 3DS has ammounted to what, exactly? A new, pretty front-end to the shop? That's hardly "fixing" anything. People keep saying "wait until it's released and it'll magically prove to be a better experience," but I just haven't seen or heard anything but "promises" (marketing speak) to back that up, yet
Still, the Nintendo fan in me still holds out hope that Nintendo have learned something from Sony and Microsoft here. :-/

I'm with WaltzElf. Friend codes returning really would be entirely contrary to the promise of a vastly superior online network. The biggest problem is that it implies a continued lack of an actual online user account, which would lead to the same kind of BS lack-of-transferability problems previous Nintendo systems have. Need more details on this potentially disastrous news ASAP.

Yeah, I know...hard to be patient with such a massive issue at hand, though.

I was excited about the 3DS when it was originally announced but the more news that's released about the device, the less I want it.

If its true, I hope its a Universal Friend code. I would be happy with that.

Here's my opinion: Friend codes should just be between systems (eg. Warioware DIY Showcase). 16 digits is more than enough security for most people, it's more secure than a SSN!
Its all right if they have the extra security available for liability reasons, but the game-to-game codes should be off by default.
They should also let you see what games your friends have (perhaps even in game status? I know its a long shot.) and which ones are online games. It would also spur people to buy more games (play with/impress friends), which is mutually beneficial to Nintendo.

No problems here if the friendcodes are universal and can be exchanged/added to your master friends list from inside a game. The 3DS should have no issues handling that system given what we've heard about it already. At that point it's basically what sony/microsoft are doing but with numbers instead of a username (though a full account tied to said usernames/friendcodes would be nice, nintendo).
If those two features aren't added, then it really has all been lies and deceit.

No friend codes this time. Nintendo has to have learned from that mistake.

Friend Code length has nothing to do with security.
The 16 digits allow for hundreds upon thousands of Wii's to be able to connect with each other, so there is no risk of having to re-use codes.

Friend codes aren't really that bad if there is just one friend list tied to the system. The problem comes from there being seperate codes on each game. If its one per system its really no different from a gamer tag or Playstation ID. I would be totally in favor of friend codes if it is on a one time per 3DS basis. I think that would show absolutely massive improvement for Nintendo's online image.
