The word pwning came about when extreme gamers, who were in the heat of extreme gaming, typed "you got owned". of course, misspelling it because a pro gamer has no time to worry about silly things like correct spelling when they are killing noobs left and right.
*awsome gamer just single-handedly killed the entire other team*

In World Of Warcraft a 42 year old man(Karen, Tiffany, Brenda, Rebecca) was caught with facts and proof from many sources imitating a 15 year old girl in game. This was brought forward to the community and he was destroyed on the boards over and over for a week solid. Old perverts lose.

Pwned is a word that was most likely created by a noob on a video game that typed "pwned" instead of "owned."
It has become used by non-noobs, perhaps to make fun of the person that made it, perhaps because it is so lacking in proofreading, it is hilarious.
