Monkey Island for Xbox Natal?

You’ve probably heard about this thing called Project Natal, and maybe you’re even excited about it. If so, you’re not the only one. Telltale Games’ Dan Connors has mentioned to that he can see Guybrush as an interesting character to use with Natal. It won’t happen any time soon though, and I can’t see it happening with the way point-and-click adventures are currently designed, but who knows what will happen? It’s certainly an interesting notion to ponder, that we may soon be able to ‘be’ Guybrush Threepwood.
