...Does this also apply to classic games played on newer systems through the virtual console or the playstation store?
Yes, the input lag is dependent on the TV itself, not the source. The source can add additional lag on top of that though.
Take, for instance, the PS3. If you have the system set to upscale PSOne Classics, it's documented that this adds more lag to the mix on top of whatever your TV does on its own. In this case, turning off the PS3's upscaling will result in less lag. But, on the other hand, some HDTVs don't really do the best job upscaling 480p content (again my old Samsung sucked terribly in this regard), so the image may or may not look worse.
