PS3 Bluray Disc drive failure

I was playing Uncharted last night. Really liking that game even though I wish they'd spent a little more time on polish. Greatly looking forward to Uncharted 2. All of a sudden, all sound effects other then footsteps disappear. I get frustrated and blame the developers for slouching. A moment later, the game asks me to pop in the disc.

17 different tries with different sorts of discs later I google around and find out my drive is broken. Well that's to bad. But it led me to realize something: everyone known that MS repair service is working like an oiled machine these days (after an initial BDSM relationship with their customers), but who knows anything about Sony's return policies?

I'm going back to the reseller store to find out, this is going to be interesting.
