Corruption of the word owned (p is next to o on the qwerty keyboard)
Quote by dudius

Originating from owned.. as in "you just got owned". Saying that you were unwilling and professionally beaten at something you tried to do, or that you were humiliated, put down, taken advantage of, ect. It is my personal belief, although I have not researched the origins, that the word "pwnd" came from an abundance of typing errors in the word "ownd", accidentally replacing the "o" with the "p" on a multitude of occasions.
This mass misspelling thus resulted in the most annoying, overly used internet concept since the "rick roll".
I step up to da mic. Bust a rhyme about my hoes, tippin' on fo' fo's.. and someone shoots me in the face. Because rap is stupid.

Well, it all started when in Vietnam a P.o.w named Ned got mutilated for talking back and his buddies coined the phrase "pwned" as a figure of speech meaning destroyed or something of that sort. Because most of them were illiterate and traumatized by the acts they saw in the camps they werent really sure hwo to spell powned and just spelled it pwned...

What this guy says.

It's originally from the gaming community, when people would mistype "owned" as "pwned" due to the close proximity of "o" and "p" on their keyboards.

Etymology
The word "pwn" may have arisen and spread as a common typo of the word "own," since the 'p' and 'o' keys are adjacent on a standard English keyboard.[3]

Its a spelling error of owned.

Started off in the early days of online gaming apparently and just took off from then.

Anyone who says 'pwned' any way other than 'owned' is a faggot and must die.

Anyhow, the misspelling theory is the truth, to be exact in one of the quake games a developer misspelled it as 'owned' was to be one of the insults it would say as you kill someone, just as the 'holy sh*t' and 'godlike' etc were. These were the first days of serious online gaming and Quake was the place to be, with the Quake community saying 'pwned' it quickly engulfed the other smaller online gaming communities who pretty much followed suit and it has never left the internet since.

'Pwned' is NOT a meme, meme's are just bollocks which took over the internet at some point along the line and stopped it being funny.
