Looks like it may be fake. An administrator named Arakon on Infectus' forum said this:
I'm quite sure it's fake. For years, noone got ANYTHING working on the ps3, and all of a sudden a company noone really knows supposedly has a chip ready that does EVERYTHING? No small steps, noone finding anything at all, just a chip out of nowhere that has every possible function? Highly unlikely.

I say what a crock of crap they are trying way to hard to fake this! Like others I wish it was real but every time this belzar site has something to do with it self it just gets more horrible... But I just had a thought that infectus chip is not just a wii chip but a multifunctional chip so I stand to correct my self it could be used for the ps3, wasn't there a team that was just a bios flash away from a fully functional modchip or something like that but anyway we will just have to wait and see and twiddle our thumbs.

The InFeCtuS 2 is a universal modchip that is compatible with Wii D2C chipsets through a special firmware. The Wii firmware, WIIKTUS, requires 13-wires for D2C hardware. Three additional connections are required for region-free support. An InFeCtuS 2 with Wii firmware is very similar to the Argon Wii, except that it can be flashed to modify other consoles as well. Also the tab of that page says wii softmod guide lol.

who said that the chip picture there belongs to belzar? anyway.. I wonder how long it will take for this thing to be announced fully fake!

Since I think both Belzar and Hactronics are the same company... and since I believe that all these stuff is fake.. I thought it would be nice to ask infectus themself about the statement:

Hacktronics have said they will soon be posting a tutorial on how to install the Belzar modchip, and with the Infectus team comfirming it is coming, I'm keeping my hopes up.

Also, with a lot more hackers looking to the PS3 as a challenge, it will eventually come, and with the PS3 slim having no other os, my guess is it will be sooner rather than later.
