I gave my Halo 4 disc to a friend who has a Xbox 360. I was going to pick later to play it on my Xbox One but, I don't know if I would be even able to play it or not on my Xbox.

Yes, inserting the disk into the system will play the game like it were on the 360. It may have to download/install updates, but it is 100% backwards compatible.


According to Microsoft,

Select digital and disc-based Xbox 360 and original Xbox games can be played on Xbox One. These backward-compatible games use an emulator for the older Xbox operating systems, providing most features of those systems, such as broadcasting and screenshot and game-clip captures.

This means most games should be able to be played on it. Here is a list of the supported games.
