How much of an improvement over Box VR is Beat Saber? I enjoy Box, but I've heard Beat Saber is peak PSVR...and it's never going on sale, apparently.

While they're both rhythm games with similar concepts, their purposes are very different. Beat Saber is a very fun game. Total pick up and play for anyone and great to show off to friends. Get a group together, pass everything around, and have a fun night. It's perfect for those of us who treat VR as something to share with others while still being a blast by yourself.
BoxVR is a workout simulation that also happens to be fun. There's no penalty for failing in the normal play. You'll do workouts from just a couple minutes long all the way up to over an hour, if you so choose (and are able). This is not great for sociability, unless it's just a couple of you and you're patient with each other. But it does make working out legitimately fun.
So it kind of depends on what you're looking for. I have both and love them equally for the different reasons described above.
