Use 2-part epoxy glue. They have special variants for plastics; always test it beforehand by applying a little bit to somewhere you can't see.

:angry: Boh what a shame. I really hope you can epoxy it together. If you have place put some thin but strong plastic behind it to get enough strenght in the reconnected parts so it looks good again from the outside.

I am really happy I received my ps/1 in a better condition and hope yours will shine once again also.

Glued the puzzle..

maybe some sanding, and repaint will make the damage invisible, but is it worth the effort ?

That looks as good as I would expect given the circumstances. I doubt sanding and painting will help at all, but I don' thave any personal experience with that type of repair.

Polycarbonate can get brittle with age. It also is problematic to paint, as some paints will simply flake off again.
