Given the hashrate (~100MH/s) I'd say it's faked. Looking around the web a 6800XT looks to be around ~60MH/s, so PS5 GPU should be lower than that.
I lean to this conclusion also. If not, then there is going to shortage of PS5 till forever probably.

So its safe to assume these will never be widely availible now? I get the feeling ps4 is gonna be around, and possibly sonys primary platform for a long time

I would think that if any of them are going to be hacked first it would be a windows based XSX.
Very wrong. Also it has custom kernel (not Windows one, it's derived from it) and all that stuff, PS4 was hacked, X1 wasn't.

Why did anyone take it seriously?

Thats RTX3080 levels, not even the 6800XT can do that.

If they could get mining to run on the consoles it would still be worth it, there's enough bandwidth there for 60ish mh/s. Very unlikely to happen though.

Maybe there would be way from browser, but these things are always constrained as to what they can yield from HW.
