The latest Battleblog has new information regarding Battlefield 3's unlocks, which are apparently abundant enough there will be "years worth".
The post goes into detail regarding Medals, Service Stars and Ribbons for "exemplary skill" which could include capturing a certain amount of bases or keeping vehicles in working order to service your team. And that actually collecting these will be no mean feat.
They also mention that Battlefield 3 will have "more than 10 times the hardware unlocks spread over weapons, weapons attachments, gadgets, and a huge unlock tree for vehicles alone" than Battlefield: Bad Company 2 had.

Couldn't agree more. What happened to the good old FPS days of CS when everyone had access to the same guns, when everything had the same amount of ammo and health and it was all up to skill if you won or not.

Also as long as the firstly available guns are reasonable and not underpowered it'll be OK. You'll find the rate of unlocks is probably pretty high to begin with and slows down over time, so even casual gamers get a good variety of unlocks rather easily.

I mean, wtf, people are complaining because there is too much content in their game? What next, people are going to start complaining because the graphics look too good?

Purchased the special edition off Origin Store (EA website) for $79 just 2 days ago. If there's an Apache, grappling hook and zip line i'll be happy.

Its not a matter of amount of content, it the fact they could be unlockables. Not everyone got the time to sit down and burn 30-50 hours on multiplayer to unlock all the content. What if your a casual who only can afford a couple of hours a week?

Then maybe its not the game for you? I wouldn't recommend World of Warcraft, Skyrim, Fallout: New Vegas or Diablo 3 to you either if you only had a couple of hours a week to game. Some games just don't lend themselves well to casual play.
Toll is probably right anyway, I'm sure the first bunch of unlocks will come reasonably quick and give you the tools you need to be competitive, but then if you're one of the people who's in for the long haul, theres plenty more you can unlock as you go.
