    Question Need help identifying (what seems like) an old game

    I've got this picture from a friend, who's asking me to help him to identify the game in this picture.
    btw - the picture can also be from the intro/cut-scene and not necessarily gameplay.

    I'm going to take a very random guess and say Novastorm for the PSX.

    Given the ultra-wide aspect ratio, it almost looks like Galaxian 3: Attack of the Zolgear..

    Where did the image come from and was is edited in any way? The resolution seems awfully high for the game to be too old. It also seems streched out a bit. If you resize it so the blue oval portal thing is more of a circle, the ships still look fine(and less blury). There is also part of the top row of pixels missing, and possibly on the edge so there could be more image we're not seeing. If this is simply from a screen grab then it couldn't be a PS1 game. PS2 maybe...or a PC game. If the image was blown up or something, then everything I'm saying is pretty pointless. Anyways, that's about all I can add.
