So the NGX is official, a slightly better/less crappier multigame portable, but the first SNK hardware in 13 years
Its 10+ years since the Dreamcast, segammy lives from rererereleasing what Sega made even 30 years ago.
On the other hand making hardware is cheaper than ever, you got people at kickstarter raising money (peanuts compared to corporations) and getting some guy from china on the phone to build it
Say whatever you want but that was IMPOSSIBLE 10 years ago, you had to send someone over there, get translators, lawyers, etc....all that costs money, lots of money.
So Sega could actually make something better than a generic portable with games hardwired on it, it could be something like those android consoles popping up in HK, or even that gaming tablet from Razer.
But the games? is not like Sega is back at doing awesome AAA games that make a console a must-buy, and getting their shit together, bring people back and do awesome games again would be waaaaay more money than getting some OEM to make a new Sega console.
It would be awesome if Sega made a comeback, but can it?
