Derived from 'own' 'ownage'; common typographical error due to rapid typing without accuracy by players of usually fast paced video games. The corruption 'pwn' subsequently became standard usage.
Of late a wider application of the word has been utilized, perhaps diminishing the exclusivity somewhat.
I just beat WJ at pool 8-2, pure pwnage!
