VGChartz Methodology: Hardware estimates are based on retail sampling and trends in individual countries, which are then extrapolated to represent the wider region. This typically allows us to produce figures that end up being within 10% of the actual totals.

This data is regularly compared against official shipment figures released by the console manufacturers and figures estimated by regional trackers with greater market coverage than ourselves. We then update our own estimates to bring them into line with those figures. This can result in frequent changes often within a short space of time, but we feel it's important to prioritise accuracy over consistency.

Switch should be able to sell 250k a week for the next 4 weeks and hit 110m by mid July (if not sooner)

The baseline seems like it's right around 280k currently, so it will probably be sooner. First week of July, probably.

So Mario Strikers hasn't moved any additional consoles at all. I kinda expected that, though it's still a pity.
