Is there any evidence of these hackers (or any of the other big recent hacks) doing any financial damage to the end-user?

Every single developer has employees, we are all end users. You are posting on a forum that has many developers from companies in partnership with Sony, Epic, etc. There are people on the other end of each of those Brand Names. Billions of dollars were lost to the global economic system due to the PSN hack.

Nothing is safe. Not in the banks, not in your homes, not in digital form, not on secure servers. If someone wants something bad enough and has the resources behind them to get it done, it will happen. When it's obvious there are many security holes in software, that people work daily to keep up with hackers finding new holes.
Putting such harsh blame on people trying to do their jobs with the tools available to them, is ignorance.

As someone below said, the hacker chose to commit a crime, blame falls on them.
