    Hi all,

    I just received my 20GB PlayStation 3 and found the plastic component near the USB ports has snapped in half from shipping (that's my best guess). Would anyone have this component around somewhere? It just doesn't look right that it's got a fracture line (I managed to clip it together). Picture below for reference. NOTE: it must be the black 20GB version, not the chrome 60GB one. I look to everyone's responses!

    Kind regards,

    To clarify, it's the 'lip' part of 20GB. I tried using a newer 80GB lip and it doesn't work, the clips are different. If anyone has the lip I'm looking for, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me.

    Kind regards,

    I used to have several YLOD/junk part PS3 systems laying around. I have since thrown them all out. :(

    Since you could still clip it on, would it not be possible to stick the pieces together with superglue?
