And? A video game is unfit for running without game console. That 
doesn't prevent me from buying (or acquiring as a gift) a bunch
of game consoles and selling bundles each consisting from a game 
console and my game(s). How is this different from distributing a 
bundle consisting from some GPL'ed and my own non-GPL'ed stuff
(I mean dynamically linked components, static linking aside for a 
moment... although it doesn't make any difference at all)?
