This reminds me of "pwn", which I recall used to be pronounced "pween" back in the day, but now everyone pronounces as "pown" or "pawn" instead for some bizarre reason...

Probably because "pween" is pretty close to "peen." No one wants to add a "no homo!" suffix every time they say they pwn'd someone.

Actually I would say that the pronounciation comes from the word "own". As in: I owned your ass -> I pwned your ass.

Ive never heard pwn being pronounced as pween. It sounds rediculous and makes no sense whatsoever. My 2c.
