Took a look at it, my Japanese isn't as good as Elmer though, so it may not be accurate. Take this with a grain of salt:
He's very vague. He talks about the Lodestone page on Jan 1st for news several times, he answers several questions with "they're looking into it, I can't comment" type of answers.
He reaffirms the importance of party play, but doesn't go into specifics;
For the battle system etc, he says Matsui is still looking at how to improve it, so he can't comment;
SE can't comment on when they'll start charging (he was asked if it would be in 1,2 months or even in the summer);
The new staff has been brought up to speed up things and help alleviate the hurdles of such a big project (seems to me it's also a matter of bypassing corporate red tape, but it's just my opinion);
His work is to coordinate and bring all the stuff together (he goes into more details but I didn't have time to translate it properly);
The PS3 version has to be on par with PC as far as content goes, even if the current build is actually playable (but they're holding it until the PC version is OK);
The rest if pretty much PR, and doesn't really offer anything new. The impression is that anyway SE isn't going for discontinuity (a lot of stuff he mentions such as the retainer system improvements is something SE already announced), at least not in the way we're used to think about it.
