When asked if Microsoft were actively seeking to build a crossplay relationship with Sony, Greenberg replied: "Absolutely, yeah". If both online ecosystems are closed off from each other, more new console buyers are going to follow those friends to Sony's console if they want to play online. It's a kind of holy grail for gamers stuck on the less popular console as they're often not able to play with friends, and because a small userbase means fewer people to play with in general. Even Microsoft itself has sold out of this special collector's edition.
Given that Microsoft is a little behind, enticing gamers with the tease of potential crossplay makes a lot of sense.

What kind of games would you hope get crossplay support between Sony and Microsoft?
If you're keeping track at home, this is the third time we've heard that. "We've done it in the past", Playstation global sales and marketing head Jim Ryan told Eurogamer back in June. However, Greenberg offered a glimmer of hope in an interview with Game Reactor, revealing that they were in discussions with Sony in order to make cross-play a reality. "Unfortunately it's a commercial discussion between ourselves and other stakeholders". "And excitement and developer commitment for Xbox One X has grown since E3 and, to date, more than 100 new and existing games will be enhanced for Xbox One X to take advantage of its full power".
