about Game Fire Aug 2012

From gnu.org:

"The one exception is in the case where binaries are distributed without the corresponding complete source code. Those who do this are required by the GNU GPL to provide source code on subsequent request. Without a limit on the fee for the source code, they would be able set a fee too large for anyone to pay—such as a billion dollars—and thus pretend to release source code while in truth concealing it. So in this case we have to limit the fee for source in order to ensure the user's freedom. In ordinary situations, however, there is no such justification for limiting distribution fees, so we do not limit them."

From the Game Fire website: "You can get the source code of the latest version of Game Fire with additional features like professional support and high priority updates by purchasing Game Fire Pro."

Explain to me, then, just how in the heck Game Fire is compliant with GNU GPL version 3 as implied on their website?
