KQ on a console?

I just had a disturbing thought.

Telltale is most likely going to build this game with a control scheme in mind that can easily port to play on consoles. King's Quest. With an XBox contoller...

I have never played an adventure game on a console. To this day I still prefer 'Point & Click' or 'Click & Drag' even over using WASD keys on my keyboard for adventure games (I suspect Escape from Monkey Island is to blame for that).

Okay, sure. Back in the parser days, we did (only) have direct control over the character in KQ games, but designing a King's Quest game specifically so that it can played with a console controller instead of a mouse just sounds so many shades of wrong to me.

I'm not saying that it will only use direct control for the PC version. I know better than that. I'm just not sure I'm personally prepared for a 3D model of Graham which I can control with a thumb stick on my TV set.

What do you guys think?
