Extended Warranties/Purchase Protection w/CC Purchases--Need Some Info

I have finally managed to save enough money to buy a Playstation3. I could just use my debit card for the purchase but I thought it might be better to charge it for the sake of taking advantage of some of the perks I've heard you get with some ccs for a purchase like this. I have never used a cc for this type of purchase and have a few ?s.  Do certain cards extend the mfrs. warranty? If so are there fees? What about damage or theft? What card is best for these types of "perks". What if only a portion of the purchase price is paid for by cc? Thanks for any clarification you can give me. Digging out and scouring over all those card agreements would not be fun for me:smileyhappy:
