Can a P&S Camera act as a webcam?

I'd love to have a webcam with optical zoom and HD. I was wondering, with all the 720p P&S cameras out there, if its possible to have both in one camera?

Kind of ridiculous using a $2000 camera for a webcam.
That's why I thought it would be great using a camera I might already own as a HD webcam if it has HD capabilities. I don't think this is possible though without some sort of capture card. Perhaps a lower cost HDMI PCI-E card would work. They're about $200 new though, which is more than the camera would cost!
