My first worry is that it's being made by Blaze, who I've heard less than stellar reports about. Also, the article in RG says the device will be out sometime in January, yet there is next to no action going on over at the Game Gadget's webpage. Similarly, the last post on their Facebook and Twitter page was in November, 2011. It seems that maybe the project has died before it got anywhere.
Still, if the system does end up seeing the light of a day and is well made and the emulation is solid I'd be tempted to pick one up.

I know a lot of people I've talked to are curious but aren't willing to put down the cash ($150 for we Aussies) until we get more info/ hear some reviews. Blaze really need to release more info about the console if they want pre-orders to be placed.
EDIT: According to their Twitter account, details of what 3rd parties have signed up for the system will be 'revealed in the coming weeks.'

For registering your Game Gadget once you get one you get Golden Axe, Altered Beast, Comix Zone, Ecco the Dolphin, Gain Ground, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master, VectorMan, Crack Down, Shadow Dancer and Space Harrier II FREE, which is pretty good.
On top of that it's also been announced that the following will be available for download upon release; Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, Kid Chameleon, Columns, Ecco Jr., Fatal Labyrinth, Eternal Champions, Alien Storm, Super Thunder Blade, Columns II, Flicky, another Ecco game, ESWAT, Decap Attack, Golden Axe II, Virtual Fighter 2, Sonic Spinball, Sonic 3D Blast, Dr Robotniks Mean Bean Machine, and a few others I can't ID from the image. So, it's a pretty awesome selection if you're a Sega fan.
Of what (little) I know of Blaze Sega have always supported them so Sega's involvement isn't a huge surprise. The telling factor will be seeing what other 3rd party companies come into play.
Begin a Sega fan this announcement of titles is exciting, however I'm still going to wait for a few reviews to see what the emulation and device quality is like before buying one.
