Even if the unlikely story (which looks like a troll of Urban Dictionary to me) is true, the phrase still doesn't really "have its roots in child pornography", as it's nothing to do with child porn. It would apply equally well to any situation where the promised reward was false, and it does seem to have been popularised by the game in question.

You could pick any random phrase and say "OMG this phrase was first used by paedophiles!" and it would make just as much sense.
